OUR HOME ON 103rd Street
Our building at 309 E. 103rd Street embodies our way. It presents a strong but serene face to the community, with soaring sunlit spaces, and a clean austerity of design that is both calming and expressive of our energy and determination. There is a hush when people enter here, not of shock nor awe, but an intake of breath when one realizes this is really how things should be – a weeping willow through the glass, great openness, unexpected angles – beauty to lighten the spirits of those who carry the burden of poverty and alienation, and for their moments here they can really believe they matter. And for our students, the lift of ceiling and play of light encourage learning, reverie, and remind them of the compassion of architects, builders, and donors who made this place and moment possible.

I am so grateful to be able to have my daughter in your school... This pandemic was handled gracefully by your staff and the facility is one of the things that brings pride to us living in El Barrio.
