BBC works with block clubs and community groups in Central and Kinsman as they identify shared problems and collectively develop solutions. Community residents create programs and activities to beautify neighborhoods, help youth, provide access to healthy foods, and much more.

However, they often use their own limited resources (money, land, space) for implementation.  BBC helps them identify funding and other resources to help support their efforts, resulting in over $75,000.00 in cash annually, in addition to other in-kind resources.

By working with BBC, groups can sustain and even expand their programming and BBC can impact the lives of more Central and Kinsman residents through programming conducted by the groups. These efforts help to build the capacity of community residents and groups to find solutions to common problems.

Examples of groups with whom BBC has worked includes Men of Central and Garden Valley Falcons and JC Cullum Renegades youth football team.
