A Special Holiday Wish for You
And what an amazing year of Acción 2016 has been!
Your Acción, has sustained a legacy that helps empower individuals and families to improve their lives through affordable housing, education, and arts programs.
Your acción prepares bilingual preschool graduates, like the 2016 class of 35 students, our largest graduating class to date. Through our solid early education curriculum, we’re “giving the best gift we can give them.” – Janayra Santiago, mother.
Your acción earned us the National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award for giving over 1,000 youth program participants alternative outlets for expression. “I love how we learn. We’re integrating the arts into learning about what it means to be a person of color.” – Noemí Negron, program participant (pictured here with our CEO and First Lady Michelle Obama).
ONEHOOD – BASKETBALL PEACE LEAGUE
Your acción keeps the peace in our neighborhoods, keeping nearly 500 youth off of the streets while creating positive connections with members of our community – such as the Boston Police Department, a key partner in this program.
Your acción supports diversity, making our Villa Victoria Center for the Arts the largest hub for Latino arts & culture in Massachusetts. You bring music, dance, and visual artworks to more than 9,000 audience members.
Your acción provides 1,055 Bostonians not just a house, but a home. A neighborhood that has been recognized for ‘defying the odds.’
OUR VILLA VICTORIA
Your acción helps our community and amplifies our efforts, which were recognized this year by Banker & Tradesmen for “inspiring achievements and innovation, and for making a lasting impact.”
We are committed to our mission, but to do this we need your help. The holidays are all about spreading joy and warmth to your community, and with your donation we can keep this spirit alive all year long.
Your one time or monthly donation helps people keep their homes, educates our future leaders, provides a fresh start for people’s careers, promotes a safer neighborhood, strengthens cultural diversity, and enriches the fabric of our community and our city. Your gift empowers individuals of all ages to create a stronger and better future for themselves and their families.
