Our Programs

Love causes us to act when we see injustice, a hurt, or a need. Love does not allow us to
sit passively by while our communities are devastated by incarceration and violence.

Long-term Success

Successful BronxConnect graduates were re-convicted of a crime at a rate of 40.7% lower than youth incarcerated in NYS OCFS Detention Centers. This success holds true after 5 years of initial mandate with a re-conviction rate 32.8% lower than OCFS. Throughout the 5 years over 73% of these convictions were for misdemeanor charges such as jumping turnstiles and disorderly conduct.

Best Rates in NYC
