As our mission, BronxWorks helps individuals and families improve their economic and social well-being. From toddlers to seniors, we feed, shelter, teach, and support our neighbors to build a stronger community. BronxWorks first opened its doors in 1972. It was created under the name Citizens Advice Bureau and came to be popularly known by its initials CAB. Over the years, we have grown tremendously, providing 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. We now operate 28 offices throughout the borough. Our programs help 37,500 people a year.
