Why? Our Programs Meet Needs

"Thank you for having Free Family Art Day! I am a single mom living on a month-to-month income and without your program this last weekend my kids would have been stuck in front of the TV due to lack of funds. Your activities are always a hit with both of my kids and I enjoy it too! Thank you again for all you do." -San Antonio Single Mom
