President & Founder

Esther "Queen" Arroyo ...


As a Community Activist and dedicated service worker, Queen currently serves as a Community Coordinator for leading gun violence prevention program in Queens, NY.   In her daily work, she is introduced to youth that have been identified as at high-risk for violence or neglect.  She works tirelessly to implement proven public health strategies and provide life-changing alternatives to clients and participants. Her work connects children and families to viable intergovernmental services, support agencies and other community based organizations. Queen has been highly visible in the greater New York area, working actively with the Mayor's Office, and New York City's Crisis Management System to reduce and prevent gun violence and shootings.  


Queen, a former USA Boxing official and marathon runner, has been an advocate for youth for over 20 years, speaking out regularly against violence and sexual abuse.
