A Message From Our President

It is an extraordinary time in our history as a 65 years old national organization focusing on the needs of children. Our achievements are possible through extraordinary leadership, talent, resources and experiences of our members residing throughout the country.

Our HEER (HEALTH, EDUCATION, EMPLOYMENT AND RECREATION) plus Arts and Humanities programming is the conduit through which we reach thousands of children nationally.
