BronxWorks is a multi-service organization whose mission is to help individuals and families improve their economic and social well-being. BronxWorks has 28 locations in the South Bronx and serves over 37,500 borough residents annually.
BronxWorks opened its first office in the Morris Heights section of the Bronx in 1972, under the name Citizens Advice Bureau. It was based on the British model of Citizens Advice Bureaus, which help people with advice and services. BronxWorks came to the borough at a time when growing numbers of low-income individuals needed a place they could count on for a range of consumer protection, entitlements, and housing counseling services.
BronxWorks provides an array of services to address the needs of all age groups from infants to senior citizens, as well as selected special needs populations. These include immigrants, homeless individuals and families, people impacted by HIV/AIDS, and adults making the transition from welfare to work.
Services include children, youth, family, and senior citizen's programs;
immigrant assistance; employment help; HIV/AIDS programs; homeless
services; and homelessness prevention.
