Project Achievement

Comes to a Close

Project Achievement came to a close last Tuesday, and we are proud to announce that every student in the program passed their end-of-year assessment with significant improvement in their reading and writing skills! In celebration of their outstanding achievements, students enjoyed their last day with Pizza Party.

In addition to enhancing their literacy skills, the children also strengthened their social skills through collaborating with other students on various projects and activities throughout the year.

A special thank you to Intisar Sesi for sponsoring this week of Project Achievement! If you’d like to sponsor a week of Project Achievement or Project Play On!, become a CALC Kids Member today!

Cooking With CALC

Last Wednesday, our Nutrition Educator taught our clients how to make Broccoli Salad in our Cooking with CALC Program! The recipe featured ingredients that our clients likely have readily available, such as broccoli, Greek yogurt, mayo, and peanuts.

During the lesson, our Nutrition Educator taught our clients how to create well-balanced meals for their families by teaching them how to portion proteins, carbs, fruits, and veggies. They also understood the importance of making small impactful changes to their eating habits to promote healthier diets.

WBI Focus Group

Thank you to all of the women that came out to WBI's Focus Group at Princess Mediterranean last Tuesday! During the focus group, the women discussed potential ways that WBI could flourish and best serve our community as we look forward to relaunching it in the near future.

A special thank you to Princess Mediterranean Grill for sponsoring the event and to Lulu's Cookies for donating delicious treats for our guests to enjoy!

Thank You to Seman's Painting!

We would like to thank Mark and the entire team at Seman's Services for donating their painting service and giving our building a beautiful new facelift! Their team completed the entire project flawlessly within three days! We are grateful for their endless generosity and dedication to this project. The most important part of our mission is to serve our clients with dignity, and for us that begins as soon as they arrive at our building.

Immigrant Heritage Month

June is Immigrant Heritage Month in Michigan! We are celebrating the refugee community all month long by uplifting their voices and sharing their stories of courage and resilience. The challenges and losses they face are immense and we are so grateful to be a small part of their journey as they work to rebuild their lives.

Nahla and her four sisters fled Iraq three days after receiving violent threats from terrorists, leaving everything behind and seeking refuge in Jordan. Tragically, their eldest sister passed away from a heart attack at the age of 45 within the first 10 minutes of their journey due to the overwhelming stress of their sudden departure and the persecution they faced.

As we shed light on real stories, from real people, Nahla’s story is just one example of the losses that many refugees have endured in their journey to find safety and a new beginning.
