An organization’s mission is its driving force and helps to focus purpose and decision making. It succinctly defines what an organization is all about. Following two stakeholder meetings to collect input from partner organizations, school representatives, community members, parents, staff members and BBC Board members, the BBC Board of Directors adopted a new mission statement as well as a vision statement, motto and organizational values.

The BBC’s mission is to provide West Side children and their families with opportunities for holistic development for healthy futures. By providing opportunities for social, emotion-al, spiritual, educational and physical development, the BBC works toward its vision of a reality where West Side children and their families have the skills, support and resources necessary to create healthy futures.
