Since 1981, BAWCC has devoted its work entirely to the needs and issues of low-income families, children, and women in the multi-ethnic Tenderloin community.  BAWCC offers a variety of direct services that address immediate needs and assist with achieving long-term stability. Its long-term projects have resulted in the creation of five playgrounds, a recreation center, a 350-student elementary school and a family center.

Building on BAWCC’s strong foundation, the Center's plans continue to focus on expanding programs which open doors of opportunity for Tenderloin and other low-income families and children.

In celebration of the Center’s 35th Anniversary, Bay Area’s Emmy award-winning Luna Productions created a documentary film that captures the Center’s efforts and its impact on the community it serves.  For a copy of the half hour feature film, please contact us.
