“ACI was very helpful with my transition to the American way of life from India. I was  overwhelmed when I first arrived here with no one to turn to. I felt uncomfortable in a strange culture. My consultant was able to answer my questions and teach me how to interpret American ways. My consultant is an understanding person who I can trust and who is able to help with the difficulties I face adapting to the American culture.”
