“Definitions belong to the definers, not the defined.” Toni Morrison
“So many people along the way, whatever it is you aspire to do, will tell you that it can’t be done. But all it takes is imagination. You dream. You plan. You reach. There will be obstacles. There will be doubters. There will be mistakes. But with hard work, with belief, with confidence and trust in yourself, there are no limits.” Michael Phelps
Our South Bronx partner, H.E.L.P., is a transitional housing shelter dedicated to ending family homelessness. In addition to providing a safe place for 96 homeless children to live, HELP runs child care programs to lessen the trauma of poverty and homelessness. We are grateful for the opportunity to contribute to their family involvement and support component by providing books and literacy resources to the 30 children they serve under 5 years old.
