Healthy Albany Park – HAP Link Service Types (http://www.cchsd.org/chicagohealthpartners.org/html/albanypark/HAPlink/ServiceTypes/ESL.html - broken link)

There are opportunities for her to learn English, which should help her obtain employment.

Can she at least understand some English? I would imagine for ANY job she needs to understand at least some. I would also guess she wouldn't be able to work directly with people/customers... has she tried fast food? I know not the most glamerous- but when you have a child to raise, they need to be raised. She could perhaps work in the back making the food? Or perhaps some type of cleaning job???

Personally I would never hire a cleaning lady -- could you be any lazier? But when I was growing up in Bethlehem all the lazy rich people had cleaning ladies. I was told that I also had them and just wasn't aware of it.... stupid arrogant rich people.

But anyway, I imagine that's a job where you don't need to know English.
