ABOUT BROC

BROC Community Action's history spans 54 years. The why of our existence has not changed for over five decades. We exist to give people a chance: to allow the disadvantaged members of our communities to develop and use their capacities and abilities so they can share in the promise of this nation.

The how of BROC Community Action's existence goes back to 1964, when a notion called "community action" emerged from President Kennedy's Committee on Juvenile Delinquency and Youth Crime. After President Kennedy, President Lyndon B. Johnson took up the fight and signed the Economic Opportunity Action of 1964. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Economic_Opportunity_Act_of_1964)

"I was very happy that BROC was able to help my family get into housing. We were living in our car for several months before someone told us about the services there. I don't know what we would have done come winter."
