Dr. Maha Elobeid (Center for New North Carolinians) received new funding of nearly one-half million dollars from the  North Carolina Commission on Volunteerism and Community Service for the “AmeriCorps ACCESS Project.” The purpose of this project is to help immigrants gain access to human services, build bridges with mainstream society, and assist immigrants with acculturation leading to self-sufficiency.

Additionally, Elobeid received new funding from the United Way of Greater Greensboro for “Thriving at Three.” A direct service intervention strategy will continue to work with 40 at-risk Hispanic children by giving them a chance to develop their full potential at the earliest possible age (0-3 years).
