My daughters have been attending thier after school program for the last three yeras and I couldn't be more please with the quality of care and the many wonderful teachings that they have received. The program offers them opportunities to learn about different cultures, provides them with coping and social skills. It teaches them tolerance and to love and respect themselves and others. As my girls are getting older and moving on, we will really miss the wonderful staff from whom they have learned so much, but I know that as my daughters grow up, love, self respect and tolerance will always be part of their inner core and values.
Urgent Inc.'s tremendous work to empower girls in Miami with the skills and opportunities needed to make positive life choices, contribute to their communities and become the future leaders of tomorrow is commendable. I wish them continued success!
