iNFINITE OPPORTUNITY


in the heart of the South Bronx

Today the South Bronx struggles to ensure its children have all the opportunities and resources they need to be successful. Despite the perseverance of community members, the persistence of nonprofit organizations and the investment of public and private dollars across a range of programs and services, the area remains among the most troubled in New York City.

The Children’s Aid Society and Phipps Neighborhoods have joined forces with a growing network of program providers and community members to create new opportunities for all the young people of the South Bronx. The coalition aims to knock down the barriers to educational and economic success through a series of programs beginning at birth and carrying through early adulthood. The South Bronx is joining a growing number of communities across the country working to achieve collective impact – bringing together various stakeholders to get results on important outcomes.

South Bronx Rising Together focuses on ensuring the following:

  • Children are healthy

  • They enter kindergarten excited and ready to learn

  • Parents and members of the community contribute to youth progress

  • Students succeed at every level and graduate from high school prepared for college

  • They graduate from college and set out on a career
