Mission Statement

The mission of Part of the Solution (POTS) is to be a loving community in the Bronx that nourishes the basic needs and hungers of all who come to our door. Founded in 1982 as a soup kitchen, POTS has expanded its mission from feeding its neighbors to nourishing the myriad of needs of the community in a holistic way.


Helping low-income families and individuals since 1982, POTS has grown to become a leading
provider of emergency food, social services and legal representation in the Bronx. Services span
a wide spectrum of human needs and are designed to help people move from crisis to stability,
and eventually self-sufficiency. Currently, services include a Community Dining Room, open
seven days a week; a Food Pantry; Nutrition Education, Clothing Room, Shower, and Mail
Facilities; Barbershop; Case Management to help people address barriers to stability; a Legal
Clinic specializing in eviction prevention and improper denial of benefits; and the POTS Family
Club, to provide intensive case management, education, social and nutrition support to a select
group of families. POTS also holds a variety of seasonal distributions for items such as back-toschool
supplies, Thanksgiving turkeys and holiday gifts and is host to a Medical and Dental Clinic.

Volunteering at Part of the Solution was a truly rewarding experience. I spent a few hours there as a member of the New York Urban League one weekend and walked away with new friends a greater sense of community involvement and desire to express to others how we can impact individuals in the smallest of ways.
