Nicholas came to Journey House back in 2001 to learn English. He came to Journey House, because they were in his neighborhood, and he wanted to improve his English language skills.
He attended their English Language Learner classes, and after a few years enrolled in their Spanish GED Program. In 2005, he received his GED all while he was working at Sendiks Food Market in Milwaukee. More recently, Nicholas returned to Journey House to work on his citizenship.
Through the years he has continued working for Sendiks and is now in charge of the dairy and frozen foods sections at the store in Whitefish Bay. His wife is an elementary school teacher in South Milwaukee and they are the proud parents of 4 children ages 11-8 months. The Journey House staff all remember Nicholas from when he and his brother brought about 89 soccer balls to Journey House for the kids in the childcare. Whenever the staff sees him he never fails to mention how appreciative he is of Journey House for all the activities he has participated in there.
Nicholas is an example of how many of our students keep returning to because of Journey House's long standing history in this community. They know Journey House will always be there for them.
