What’s Happening
In 2014, the BCDC matched 4,000 volunteer hours with donations of materials and money to complete the Fannie Mae Stewart Community Conservatory. The Conservatory has since hosted 160 meetings of community organizations, provided a community space for recreation and has served as the canada viagra sales offices of the property manager and caseworker for the Transitional Housing Program. We have also completed construction on a brand new home for a deserving family and have expanded our staff to include a Bookkeeper/Contract Manager.

This year BCDC will begin to build the first of six “Alley Flats”; small, one bed room houses located on the backs of large lots. Each unit costs approximately $70,000 and will require 2,000 volunteer hours. We are also securing funding for several other projects; our proposed 8-unit apartment complex, the addition of 7 homes to our housing stock, as well as repair and updating of those additional homes.

We are also partnering with the City of Austin to install a traffic circle at the intersection of 22nd and Salina Streets, an area where up to two dozen children regularly play. To provide plants and best viagra online paint for the mural and island, the nonprofit needs about $1,000 while volunteers will provide several hundred hours of labor to paint, plant and maintain the traffic circle.


New Website
We have just finished making our new Website. Check back for regular updates and let us know how we are doing.


Stewart House Driveway
The new driveway and accessible sidewalk are underway at Stewart House, marking the final touches of the current stage of construction. Once the driveway and sidewalk are completed we will be a fully accessible building (complete with our handicap accessible motorized door, installed in May), and will obtain our Compliance Certificate from the City of Austin.
