The community we serve
We are located in the heart of the Bronx called Morrisania, a densely populated area with high-rise apartments and apartment complexes. This New York City neighborhood has many spoken languages and cultures filled with bodegas, markets, restaurants and small businesses.
We are a faith based organization formed to aid, assist and provide outreach services to under privileged youth and families in need in urban neighborhoods. The goal of our organization is to meet the holistic needs of the families in the communities we serve and to improve their overall quality of life.
