....Children who find their way to NYC’s Children’s Center are among the most fragile and needy children in the City. The opportunity for them, at this critical moment in their lives, to experience the inspiring glow of the arts through Culture For One is indeed a gift. We are all so grateful for your
extraordinary efforts.
— Tim Roche, Associate Commissioner of ACS Children's Center and Office of Placement Administration
