Growing up, I was lucky to never have to worry about the safety of my neighborhood or the opportunity for a great education. When you experience the oasis of hope created by Providence Center for the neighborhood that we serve via teaching programs for adults and children along with other community engagement, the question is really why aren’t more people lining up to help.

I’m at the stage in life when I get to do work that I want to do rather than have to do. How great is it to actually have the chance to make a difference in the life of a child who has huge promise and little opportunity?

Being the product of and growing up in a working class Philadelphia neighborhood I have experienced firsthand the daily challenges and the impact that a Catholic education and organizations have had on my life. Recognizing the positive impact that the Providence Center has made within the Fairhill community, I view my service to the organization as a means for me to give back for all that I have been blessed with.
