Bronx Community Solutions Turns 10!

Happy Birthday to BCS!  This year marks the tenth year that Bronx Community Solutions has been in operation in the Bronx.

From our humble beginnings of a staff of four, we are now a staff of over twenty, providing alternatives to jail for nearly 9,000 individuals each year.

To commemorate this anniversary, in April we hosted an event at the Bronx Supreme Court. Nearly 170 people were in attendance for the lunchtime event. Some pictures from the event are below. You can also read a write-up about the event by our Executive Director here: Changing the DNA of the Courts
