Many of the mothers in Mentoring Moms are single mothers struggling to provide for their families. A night out at a live performance is hardly doable on a tight budget. The Arts Access gives these mothers the opportunity to experience cultural arts, as well as a give them a much needed break! Rita, a mentor to 2 mothers in the programs, said of the evening, “It was great and we all had a lovely time. Many thanks for the tickets!” Rita noted how helpful the staff was to her mentee, who is confined to a wheelchair, “ We had to be relocated to the orchestra level …. but the floor manager was very accommodating.”
A special big thank you to the Bergen PAC Arts Access program for not only providing this wonderful opportunity, but for taking the extra steps to take care of our families !
