South Bronx Action Group says "We’re still here"

For 40 years the South Bronx Action group helped tenants who lived in Mott Haven, Melrose and Port Morris. Then in February, the organization lost its home. Forced by cuts to its funding from the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development to leave the offices on East 149th Street where its staff had counseled tenants on housing and citizenship issues, South Bronx Action did what many individuals do—it moved in with a relative. It now shares quarters with Nos Quedamos on Melrose Avenue and East 156th Street, bringing together two social service agencies of long standing.
