East Side House's Josue Rodriguez Retires After 19 Years of Service In The South Bronx

After 19 years of service East Side House Settlement’s Associate Executive Director, Josué Rodriguez, has announced his retirement. 

Prior to coming to East Side House, Mr. Rodriguez worked at the United States Postal Services for 16 years as well as owned a towing company for several years. Although both of these careers cultivated Mr. Rodriguez’s keen business acumen, he felt he was missing his calling. 

“I was a high school dropout, though I always wanted to be a psychologist or social worker. “My buddies were always telling me, ‘You’ve got to go to social work school!’” Rodriguez recalls. So he did. 

Then, while working as a community organizer in an anti-drug program under the Dinkins administration, Mr. Rodriguez came to know John Sanchez, who is the current Executive Director East Side House, Inc. Soon enough, Mr. Rodriguez joined the East Side House team in 1996. 

Beyond the impact on thousands of youth in his early years at East Side House, Mr. Rodriguez is credited with the creation of what has become East Side House “secret sauce” to success: rigorous educational services complemented by essential social services delivered by trained social workers. This recipe has opened the door for thousands of local students each year. He also led the way in bringing these services into schools, at a time when CBO presence in schools was unpopular. East Side House has since established itself in 16 NYC DOE public schools—and growing! - serving nearly 3,000 students daily.
