Candice currently attends Hunter College studying Social Studies and Creative Writing with a minor in Women Studies. She is considering going into social work.
Thank you so much Candice for your hard work and commitment to serve our clients!

The halls at ESS are buzzing with activity as we prepare to send 3,000 kids in our programs back to school. A gift of just $20 or more provides the tools for a child to succeed this school year.
Will you give $20 or more to our back-to-school campaign?
