Colorful paintings, expressive masks, and street photography covered the walls of the Boricua College Art Gallery in Washington Heights at the 14th Annual Children’s Art Show, on June 14. The many pieces of art on display came from all corners of the Children’s Aid community, with artists starting as young as our Head Start participants—three and four years old—to our graduating high school seniors.

Sage Lopez is what you might call a Children’s Aid lifer. He first came to our East Harlem Center nine years ago. Today, because of the guidance, support, and hope he has found there and through the center’s Boys & Girls Club, he considers it his second family. Among many things, Sage said, “The club gave me the chance to explore my passion for science, technology, engineering, and math.”

The Children’s Aid Society launched more than 160 years ago with a singular mission: to relieve the abject poverty that gripped orphaned children in New York City. Back then, the city’s social services were severely lacking, and most of society accepted widespread indigence as a simple fact of life.
