When Adriana started at FDC after school in the third grade she was quiet and shy. Now, thanks to you, she's social and confident. Today Adriana volunteers to help with activities and shows up to support her peers.
She describes the transition FDC has helped her with: "I was very quiet because I didn't know everyone here. Now there's Juliet, Sonam, David, Isaiah, Lhakpa and Kamail. We basically talk and help each other with our problems. I realized I would give up easily, my Group Leader Arthur helped me overcome my doubt, he motivated me to become more confident."
Your support makes the comradery and acceptance Adriana shares with her friends at FDC programming possible.
Your support helps to make so much good happen in our community -- from after school and summer camp to housing support, eviction prevention and community development. Thank you. I hope you will commit to the local Brooklyn community by making a personally meaningful gift to FDC today.
