Help your Neighbors
We believe that we receive by giving and give by receiving. Will you help us give to those who are in need? Together we make a community.
In 2014 the Board of Directors and BACN staff reviewed current and future facility needs, asking how we can better support critical services like food and clothing while also encouraging Neighbors to move toward self-sufficiency. The vision that developed was one of collaboration with regional service partners within the area’s social services realm to provide the needed programs locally to our Neighbors, and to expand and fortify opportunities in adult education, job readiness and basic life skills. In support of this the Board also began a facility planning process to review options for use of the unoccupied portion of our building. What was found was that this unoccupied portion was structurally unsound, and needed to come down. A facility renovation plan was executed in 2015 that will allow for more training and educational offerings and better efficiency in our pantry, clothing center and computer lab (and will address safety issues with our parking area). We are awed by the potential before us and by the realization that none of our past success or future plans will be possible without your continued support. Please come visit us this season and see firsthand the impact your gift is making. Help us strengthen this caring community of Neighbors helping Neighbors.
