Dr. Fernando Cabrera
Born in the Bronx to a Dominican father and Puerto Rican mother on April 16, 1964, Dr. Fernando Cabrera learned early in life the value of standing up for his community and working families. While pursuing his graduate degree in Virginia, Dr. Cabrera directed New Life for Youth, one of the most successful rehabilitation programs in the nation.

Dr. Cabrera received his Doctorate in Counseling from Argosy University and in 2000 became the program director for the graduate Counseling program at Mercy College, which has tripled in enrollment under his leadership.

A tireless community activist, Dr. Cabrera has worked in leadership positions since his early twenties. For the last four years, he has co-chaired the Hispanic-Jewish Relations Task Force for Bronx Borough President Adolfo Carrion, bringing communities together by working together with projects such as “It's My Park” Clean Up Day at St. James Park.  Dr. Cabrera has also served as an active and effective member of Community Board 7. In recent years, Dr. Cabrera has lobbied the State Legislature to halt the reduction of funding for senior citizens, rehabilitation programs, and schools.  Since 2007 he has worked to secure local jobs for local community members at the Kingsbridge Armory and led the largest March for Youth in the Bronx, advocating for the old Fordham Library to be turned over to the community as a Youth Dream Center.  As a passionate worker for youth, Dr. Cabrera has partnered with DARE to launch a successful concert series at St. James Park, providing free high-quality entertainment and a positive message for youth and adults in the area. 

Following his return to New York in 1988, Dr. Cabrera and his wife, Elvia, started a church called New Life Outreach International, a congregation which has grown to nearly 400 members. As a pastor, he has led his congregation toward community action against violence, implemented youth leadership programs, and offered free drug rehabilitation services and support groups.  He has worked tirelessly for this church since 1988 without receiving a salary.

For his excellence in public service, Fernando Cabrera has received numerous recognitions from organizations and government officials, including two Citations of Merit from Bronx Borough Presidents Adolfo Carrion and Fernando Ferrer as well as a recognition from the Latin and African American Chaplain Organization.
