Bill Loring "You can bring joy to people you've never met and that's just really incredible. It made me feel like this is where I need to be." Bill Loring Leah Tirado "Aaron, and the CIVIC, took a chance on me. I don’t know if he knew that he was giving me a second chance at life. I don’t know if he knew he was giving me this opportunity to continue to create." Leah Tirado Connie Chalko “I was very lonely. I didn't have friends. I was bullied and failing every class. I auditioned for a show and at that moment, my whole life changed. I can say it was a miracle." Connie Chalko Darlene Hampton "The CIVIC has given me a home. It’s brought creativity back into my life in a way that it hadn’t been in a long time. I get to be an artist again. I’m healthier, I’m happier, I am more confident." Darlene Hampton
