United Bronx Parents Records, 1966-2011

Series I: Administration, 1966-2011

Series I contains records related to management, human resources, training, and operations at United Bronx Parents (UBP). These administrative files document activities from the United Bronx Parents central office under the organization's second executive director, Lorraine Montenegro, as well as La Casita and other major projects. There are groups of Board of Trustees meeting minutes and internal and external memos, but neither is a comprehensive set of records. The human resources files provide insight into employee policies and practices at UBP, where many employees were family and friends. A small number of records from 2007-2009 document a major funder's investigation into complaints about Lorraine Montenegro's management of the organization and her reaction to the process. Series I also contains official UBP publications with histories and descriptions of each program area.
