  1. Hi, My name is Allison Ly and I stumbled upon your organization because I’m doing an informative speech on a non-profit organization in Montgomery County. I just wanted to say I am so happy there are non-profits like the VAS that exist. These older generations deserve to adapt to this society because as we know, they are amazingly strong people who deserve so much more. Thank you for doing what you do. You all are amazing people. I always see my mom watching English grammar videos on YouTube and I can only empathize how hard it must be for a Vietnamese immigrant. I hope your organization continues to thrive and help these well-deserving people. Everything Best.
