Maria is a truly precious human being who I am proud to call a friend! The Day Worker Center has been a quiet addition to the neighborhood. Visitors are welcome to stop in and say hello and see the Center for themselves. It is impressive and very friendly. Much success in the future!!!

what is opertunity? I would really advice you to learn how to write before you try to make an argument. Just shows how people are so ignorant!!

I dont know why people can't just be supportive.

BTW to the ones that say that why can't they help citizens who need the help the answer to that is because they are not seeking help instead they are just filing for unemployment and going to the streets asking for money intead of working for it.
