Resource Center for Community Development
Bronx, New York, USA
MissionThe mission of the Resource Center for Community Development, Inc. also known in the community as "The HopeLine", is to provide much-needed social services to the residents of the South Bronx, many of whom are immigrants living in what is the poorest Congressional district in the United States.
What We DoThe HopeLine takes a holistic approach towards serving the community; we meet our client's immediate needs through the Food Pantry and Clothing Bank we operate. We then use these services as recruitment tools for the other programs we offer, including: English-as-a-Second-Language classes, Computer Literacy training, Health Screenings and Referrals.
Our approach is rooted in the idea of empowering the individual; we seek to provide social, psychological and moral support for our clients and to equip them with the tools they need to be able to improve their lives and the lives of their families.
