As a community based Family Resource Center,
we work to help at-risk community members get the services they need to lead
stable, healthy and productive lives through programs that address
poverty, unemployment and under-employment, crime, teen issues,
lower education levels and financial needs.
Building a Stronger Community
BCN coordinates with eight United Way agencies and over fifty additional partners to provide one-stop-shopping services to area residents within a defined area. Through a strong partnership with an advisory council of neighbors, we are able to strengthen nearby neighborhoods and address the needs of residents who rank safety for children and families as their top priority. As a community-based Family Resource Center, we address the needs of at-risk individuals by providing services essential for them to lead healthy and productive lives. Special programs address poverty, unemployment, education, financial, crime and safety.
As one of 18 Nashville FRC’s, we direct families to the appropriate resources that lead to self-sufficiency. At our site we provide working parents with top-rated childcare through our partnership with the 15th Avenue North Learning Academy; offer quality after-school programs; and provide seniors with nutritious meals as well as connectional resources for the entire family. Children and youth enrolled in our after-school programs receive nutritious snacks and dinner each afternoon through our partnership with the Metro Action Commission and SPARK Health and Fitness Initiative.
