Chatham Literacy’s citizenship program offers preparation classes for the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services naturalization test for those desiring to become a U.S. citizen.
It is uncommon for an entire family to rally behind each other to achieve a major goal. This was the case for five members of one family who enlisted Chatham Literacy to help them obtain their U.S. Citizenship. It started with Agustin M. and Maria V. who emigrated to the U.S. from Guanajuato Mexico with their daughter Elena. The parents obtained their citizenship in 2015, with Elena receiving hers a year later. Elena’s husband, Alejandro V., who emigrated to the U.S. from Tamaulipas Mexico, just became a U.S. citizen this year, along with his sister, Estela M.
Elena and Alejandro are raising their four children, with Elena as a stay-home mom, and Alejandro working as a cabinet maker. Becoming U.S. Citizens helps them to remain together as a family, and to be active participants in their adopted country.
