Bronx enrichment center provides support for families amid pandemic
O.U.R. Place Family Enrichment Center is providing a supportive place for families to connect.
The center provides community and youth activities as well as health, financial and housing workshops.
Its goal is to reduce child welfare involvement by supporting and working with Bronx residents to provide resources and services based on the needs of the community.
The center is also part of the city’s Children for Administrative Services. It has been serving the Longwood and Hunts Point neighborhoods since 2017.
The community says the center has served as a valuable resource during the height of the coronavirus pandemic by distributing food and other supplies.
