"The American Dream" from the Belleville News Democrat

The recent Harvard Study that looked at earning power over a 30 year period for people born into poverty was very sobering. At Griffin Center we know how difficult it is for our children to overcome the odds and break the cycle of generational poverty. Our mission is to change that statistic. Our programs of educational support and social/emotional growth are intended to help children reach their full potential and develop into happy, healthy, self-supporting, productive citizens.
