East Side House is a community resource in the South Bronx. Our focus is on critical developmental periods - early childhood and adolescence - and critical junctures - points at which people are determined to become economically independent. We enrich, supplement and enhance the public school system and place college within reach of motivated students. We provide services to families in order that other family members may pursue their educational goals. We provide technology and career readiness training to enable students to improve their economic status and lead more fulfilling lives.
East Side House, founded in 1891, has served the Mott Haven section of the Bronx since 1963. A staff of 210, including full and part-time teachers, social workers and other experts serve over 8,000 residents from 14 locations.
