NPR highlights Briya’s comprehensive approach to helping immigrants

Briya’s holistic approach to education, including the unique two-generation model and partnership with Mary’s Center, is highlighted in a story by Armando Trull of WAMU 88.5, NPR’s DC affiliate, as a way to help immigrant families overcome poverty.

“’One of the things that [Briya and Mary’s Center] do very well is bringing all these elements together dealing with the issues that the families face — health issues, parenting issues and so forth — at the same time that they’re dealing with the children, and that’s what really makes that household more likely to succeed over the long haul,’” Stuart Butler, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, says in the story.
