Founded by community activist leader, Evelina Lopez Antonetty, in 1966 as a not-for-profit organization, United Bronx Parents set out to improve the standard of education of the South Bronx public school system. Initially composed of neighborhood parents, the UBC soon after persuaded local businesses to join their cause and strengthen their efforts to challenge community issues such as bilingual education, unfair minority hiring practices, decentralization, and community control of local schools. Decades later, United Bronx Parents has expanded into a multi-program organization that provides a wide range of services such as emergency food programs, housing, day care, family planning, medical assessments, counseling, recreational activities, bilingual adult education, as well as programs that educate and treat those with substance abuse issues and HIV.
