Broad Community Connections (BCC)
BCC led the development of the ReFresh Project, co-owns the building, and leads the ReFresh Collaborative. BCC is a non-profit, community development organization devoted to revitalizing Broad Street as a vibrant, equitable, and inclusive commercial corridor by promoting the health and economic, residential, and cultural development of its diverse surrounding neighborhoods. Neighbors living along Broad Street started BCC after Hurricane Katrina in an effort to rebuild our community and ensure people living here were able to thrive. broadcommunityconnections.org
