Appreciation can change a day, even change a life.
As we enter the season of giving, I want to thank all of you who support the work we do each day to help young people develop a path for success. We appreciate all your kindness and send our gratitude to you. We here at CDI appreciate the opportunity to help someone make the next right move that could open up a cornucopia of possibilities. Your donations enable young people to develop a path for higher education that we hope breaks the cycle of poverty for their families. And someday those same young people will be giving back to those in need. It is a gift to be of service to those who need us. Know that you have been a gift in supporting young people across the City of New York, and know that we could not do it without you! 

Warm Regards,
Michael Roberts
Executive Director

I’m thankful for my parents and my JV volleyball team. I’m excited for college and all the new experiences in store for me!

I am thankful to be playing on my school’s soccer team! When I was in Bangladesh, my school didn’t have a soccer team, but now we just finished runners-up in a city-wide game. I’m also grateful that I’m going to graduate high school. I really want to study computer science or accounting in college. Mostafa, MCNDHS

Your Dollars Make a Difference!

Without the support of each and every one of our individual donors, the stories you read about and the programs that make an impact in the lives of our young people would not be possible. Thank you!
