Our

Community

In the Bronx, you can see incredible diversity: not just in culture and language but also in story, circumstance and need. The Bronx is also a community which has experienced generations of poverty in one of the most expensive cities in the world. This puts our neighbors at greater risk for a host of challenges, including food and housing insecurity, disadvantages in accessing employment and education, and poor medical and mental health outcomes.
