26% of Bronx residents live below the poverty line!

In The Beginning...


BPHN is a non-profit organization founded in 2001 by three single parents in the Bronx who found it difficult to secure affordable housing for single parents and people with disabilities. Since that time, Mr. Rivera has helped create housing units for hundreds of single parents and persons living with disabilities, specializing in housing for people living with HIV/AIDS, Mental Illness & Homelessness.

The Bronx Parents Housing Network was founded in 2001. Its basic mission is to provide preventative social services and housing resources to individuals, single parents, substance abusers, the physically and developmentally disabled, people living with HIV/AIDS, the homeless and ex-offenders. During the past seven years the organization has served approximately 400 homeless families, 300 youth and 200 victims of domestic violence. The organization provided these services without having a dedicated funding stream.
