On June 5, we received a grant from the Medical Center Neighborhood Fund, a volunteer-funded grant that is a collaboration among NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, the New York Psychiatric Institute, and the Columbia University Medical Center.

Then on June 11, to our surprise and delight, we received a lovely acknowledgment from Community Pediatrics, for our work in promoting literacy in the community.


Thank you, Emelin Martinez, director of the Ambulatory Care Network programs Reach Out and Read and H.E.A.L.!

Thank you!
