Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Child Day Care, Children & Youth

Mission: BCCA, founded in 1998, grew out of the need for families who are employed at Belmont Park, Aquaduct Race Track, and Saratoga Race Course to have safe, reliable early childhood education.The unique nature of backstretch work prevents workers from using existing child care services. Employees arrive before sunrise, hours before established centers open, and often include seven-day work weeks not serviced by traditional child care programs. In addition, most racetrack employees simply cannot afford the cost of safe, reliable early childhood education. BCCA's mission is to provide the families with early childhood education, encouragement and the support they need to build bright futures for their children.

Target demographics: disadvantaged children of the backstretch workers of Belmont Racetrack.

Geographic areas served: early education

Programs: Early childhood education program, after school tutoring for children ages 6-15, enrichment programs such as music, art, chess, yoga, nutrition, and many more.
