OUR IMPACT EXPLAINS HOW WE SERVE PEOPLE

We partner with families to overcome trauma and other barriers to excellent health so that they may strengthen their ability to support their children, family and community toward healthy, successful development. BBK programs focus specifically on ensuring the well-being of parents and supporting parents to determine long term success for their children.

We provide nurturing environments skills-based training that develops the leadership capacity of parents/primary caregivers. Our ultimate aim is that Richmond parents/primary caregivers affect positive changes in home, schools and neighborhoods.

Summer Program

Crianza Con Cariño

Nurturing Parenting/ Crianza Con Cariño: BBK collaborates with partners to provide evidenced based and informed learning opportunities focused on parents/primary caregivers living within Richmond. These sessions incorporate curricula for child(ren)/youth that are aligned with learning objectives for parent participants, creating an ongoing mechanism for mutual learning and reinforcement at home. Classes are free and dinner and developmental child care are provided.

Family Engagement Nights: These fun, free, monthly events are for children, parents, and caregivers. Our goal is to provide safe, enriching spaces for families to spend time together, promote healthy childhood development, and connect with helpful community partners and resources. Each month we feature a different partner who shares information about their services and hosts different crafts, activities and games for participating families.

Women’s Sanctuary: Through our Sanctuary groups we educate, support healing, offer mothers the opportunity to share information, build community and work with moms to develop accessible approaches to maintaining their mental health and that of their families and community. A welcome residual of this work with mothers is that they are also able to attain personal and collective power in a peaceful and stable environment.

Health & Wellness Summer Program: A free seven-week program that provides community directed and evidence-based health programming in Richmond. The focus of the project is to ensure that the children in the neighborhood have access to at least one healthy meal per day, that family members have access to health promoting fitness activities that they can do individually or together as a family and connect with helpful community partners and resources.

We partner with Central Richmond families so that they may strengthen their ability to support their children, family and community.
