Welcome to Children’s Focus where culture, the arts and families connect!

I don’t need a crystal ball to predict that this year will be challenging. Families all over the city are already stressed and apprehensive. In New York City, we have one of the largest immigrant populations in the country, and we celebrate our multicultural differences all the time. Right now we are celebrating the Chinese New Year and African American History Month, and throughout the year we will continue to share the diverse cultures that make New York great. In the face of tremendous negativity and fear, this year will offer us an opportunity to teach our children how to deal with stress, have empathy for others and build strong community ties. Activism will be the new buzzword on the block. How we interact and support each other at this crucial time will be part of the legacy we leave our children.

Welcome to the New Year!

Don't forget
