BCCSA History

Featured Services

We offer multiple services to our communities that focus on meeting the crucial needs of our neighbors. BCCSA provides many avenues to help. Here is a glimpse of 3 of our services, but you can find all of our services listed on our services page. Contact us for further information.


Services for securing and stabilizing housing are available to first time home buyers, homeless families and individuals, tenants and those families and individuals at-risk of homelessness.

Emergency Assistance

The Emergency Services program is designed to provide short-term assistance to low-income households that have immediate needs with an essential item (shelter, utilities, water, clothing, food, transportation, etc.)


We provide home-delivered nutritious meals, congregate meals, outreach, nutrition education, supportive services, and recreational activities for individuals age 60 and older.

Our Impact
