Hope is Real

As we reflect on the past year, the eloquent words of inaugural poet Amanda Gorman are fitting:

That even as we grieved, we grew; That even as we hurt, we hoped; That even as we tired, we tried.

We survived a year full of challenges, heartaches and losses. NECAT was tested like never before, but staff and students never gave up. COVID proved that resilience is truly our common thread.

We exist thanks to the cooperation and generosity of individuals, corporate sponsors, program partners and advocates who helped make the impossible possible.┬áPlease watch the short video here on life at NECAT since last March. Since we can’t bring you to NECAT yet, we’re bringing NECAT to you!
