The Board of Child Care is a human services organization that helps children. Since 1874, we have given children and their families hope for the future and power in their present lives. Today, we serve more than 1,300 people through our residential and community-based services.
Our goal is to build a bridge leading to independence, success and confidence for children facing adverse life circumstances. When they leave us, we want them prepared to meet the world and to live productive lives.
We invite you to learn more about our programs:
- Links to the left describe our core program offerings
- Schedule a tour of BCC's main campus and/or Welcome Center
- Speak to a staff member about our programs and how to get involved.
Please join us in making a difference in the lives of children and families.
