Start Small Think Big is a non-profit organization bringing high-quality financial development services and civil legal assistance to residents of the South Bronx. Start Small is located in the heart of the South Bronx, in New York’s 16th Congressional District. The Bronx remains the poorest urban county in the United States, and NY16 the poorest congressional district. Start Small’s mission is to empower our clients, over 80% of whom are low-income and minority women, to increase their economic opportunities and build sustainable financial independence.
Start Small’s goal is to provide our clients with the tools that they need to navigate toward self-defined goals. To this end, we employ a positive, holistic, and person-centered approach to financial development, which empowers our clients to think bigger and more long-term, and direct their own path toward a future of increased assets, reduced vulnerability to financial shocks, and improved overall economic security.
