PARTNER TESTIMONIALS:


“CACF is deeply grateful for the support and leadership from Project by Project. PbP’s focus on supporting the Asian Pacific American community here in NYC is so important. Through PbP’s help, we were able to continue to develop a model initiative to address the mental health needs of Asian Pacific American children and families after the tragedies of 9/11. With PbP, we were able to raise public awareness of the impact of 9/11 on Asian Pacific American families, work on developing a sense of community for these families, and ensure mental health professionals and other service providers were culturally responsive to these families.”
