United Bronx Parents Inc.(UBP); was founded by community activist leader and Latina Woman Warrior, Dra. Evelina López Antonetty as an organization of parents and local businesses advocating for improved education for our children in The South Bronx public school system. Bilingual education, minority hiring, parent training, decentralization and community control of local schools were some of the issues for which UBP organized a community response and advocated for more inclusive policies.
The agency was incorporated in 1966 as a not-for-profit organization. Increasingly, as the community began to express more basic survival needs, UBP began to develop new service offerings, including emergency food programs, Bilingual Adult Education and Day Care services throughout the 1970’s.In the 1980’s and 1990’s, the growing prevalence of substance abuse and HIV-related issues among the people served by the agency, led UBP to develop a variety of AIDS and addiction-related service approaches.
