Description & History

Helping low-income families and individuals since 1982, Part of the Solution (POTS) has grown to become a leading provider of emergency food, social services and legal representation in the Bronx. POTS’ ‘one-stop shop’ design will assist more than 25,000 individuals, including 8,000 children, as they move from crisis to stability and, ultimately, self-sufficiency this year alone.  Currently, services include a Community Dining Room, open seven days a week; a Food Pantry; Clothing Room, Shower, and Mail Facilities; Barbershop; Case Management to help people address barriers to stability; a Legal Clinic specializing in eviction prevention and improper denial of benefits; and the POTS Family Club, to provide comprehensive case management, education, social and nutrition support to a select group of families. POTS also holds a variety of seasonal distributions for items such as back-to-school supplies, Thanksgiving turkeys, and holiday gifts and is host to Immigrant Justice Corps Fellows to offer immigration services and a Medical and Dental Clinic.
