The HopeLine works to provide services that directly benefit the residents of the Bronx to help them become productive members of their community and families. We provide a food assistance program that serves 50 families daily, as well as English classes that allow English Language Learners improve their second language abilities. Many of the clients that we serve are of foreign origin, and speak little to no English, and the English classes ease their integration into society. The Resource Center for Community Development continues to create relationships with other organizations in the community and have representatives from those organizations come to our facility to do workshops and presentations. We currently have ongoing workshops with the American Diabetes Association, and The Committee for Hispanic Children and Families that run a children’s literacy workshop for parents of children 0-5 years old. The Resource Center for Community Development runs a clothing bank during the week to provide clients with clothes free of charge for children and adults. We work to create solidarity among the community members so that they will take initiative to improve their lives and the lives of their loved ones.
