It has been eleven years since I first stepped through the doors of The Brotherhood/Sister Sol, a youth organization in Harlem that provides comprehensive, holistic and long-term support services to young people who range in age from eight to twenty-two. The little red brownstone in West Harlem, a predominantly black and brown neighborhood, stands as a beacon of hope for so many in our community. Not just for the young people who play and learn and laugh and love within these walls, but for their family members who trust their children to the amazing staff of counselors, mentors, older brothers and sisters.
