"TWB's outreach directly affects the lives of children throughout Washington, DC. Exposure to the arts provides an outlet, a new outlook, helps build relationships and community, develops work ethic, pride, inspiration and gives children a place to discover themselves. I am proud to donate my time and resources to sustain those possibilities in my community." ~Joy E. Robertson
