From 2003 to date, over 17 yrs, GRAAFICS has yet to receive or be awarded a single penny of City, State or Federal program funding. 15,000 kids later, we are still here.
How does a program survive over 17 years, help over 15,000 kids, be recognized as one of the top 3 juvenile justice programs in NYC and not receive or be awarded a single penny of City, State or federal funding? by operating on a private sector business' model and by NOT selling our soul to the highest bidder.
When elected officials wanted to use us to help their re-election campaigns, in exchange for money, we said no, and figured out a way to stay alive making a difference in the lives of those kids that needed us.
