My three daughters were fortunate to have been MECA Kids. I firmly believe the years they spent at MECA learning to dance, sing, act, play the piano, trumpet, violin, draw, paint.......made a great difference in their ability to achieve in academics. I am forever indebted to MECA, Alice Valdez and her genius, the instructors, staff and all the volunteers. MECA is worth your time, donations and attendance at their performances and activities. If you have children from the ages of 5 to 95 you MUST take them to MECA!! Thank you MECA!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the success of my children in their lives as adults because of the gift of Art shared by MECA.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

raise more money so they can touch the lives of more children.
