  1. Hello!

    I think this organization is a wonderful asset to the N.Y. community. I am a recent graduate of USC’s Heritage Conservation program. I am looking to start an organization much like yours here in Watts, California. It would be wonderful to gain insight on how you began your adventure, the roadblocks, and any advice to getting started.

    Thank you for your time,
    ~Rita Cofield
