  • Former Longtime BronxWorks Executive Director Carolyn McLaughlin to Showcase Her New Book “South Bronx Battles: Stories of Resistance, Resilience and Renewal”

    Carolyn McLaughlin worked in the South Bronx for close to 50 years, witnessing the area’s decline and participating in its renewal. For 34 years she led BronxWorks, a highly respected human service agency that helps 35,000 people a year.

    In South Bronx Battles: Stories of Resistance, Resilience  and Renewal, Carolyn McLaughlin takes us on a journey of the South Bronx through the eyes of its community members. Facing burned-out neighborhoods of the 1970s, residents fought back. McLaughlin illustrates the spirit of the community in creating a vibrant, diverse culture and its decades-long commitment to develop nonprofit housing and social-services, and better education, health care, and a healthier environment. For the South Bronx to remain a haven for poor families, making housing affordable is the central—but most challenging—task.

     South Bronx Battles is the comeback story of a community that was in crisis but now serves as a beacon for other cities to rebuild, while keeping their neighborhoods affordable
