OUR MISSION

individuals. families. communities 

BACR’s mission is to promote the healthy development of individuals and families, encourage service and volunteerism, and help build community. We carry out our mission by (1) providing direct school- and community-based services, (2) connecting volunteers with opportunities to best serve their communities, and (3) building and strengthening all of the communities we serve so that community members and institutions can effect change. BACR and our staff are guided by a set of core values and beliefs that informs our approach to services, personnel recruitment, and professional development. 

Our annual program evaluations have consistently shown positive impacts, including improved youth development skills, school performance, and family functioning.

We have deep respect for the communities we serve throughout the Greater San Francisco Bay Area, the dedicated staff who show up for those in need, and the opportunity we have been given through this work to promote resilience in tens of thousands of individuals every year.
