"When the founders of Mid-Bronx Senior Citizens Council first came together in the early 1970s, it seemed as if everyone believed it was possible to change the world, and necessary. We certainly believed it! We were a diverse group of activists - parents, social workers, business people, representatives from many different faith-based institutions and from many different ethnic groups. We understood that there was a lot of work that needed to be done. Our response was to roll up our sleeves and do it."
Jeanette Puryear, President & CEO Mid-Bronx Senior Citizens Council
