ABOUT BROC

BROC - Community Action in Southwestern Vermont's history spans 52 years. The why of our existence has not changed for five decades. We exist to give people a chance: to allow the disadvantaged members of our communities to develop and use their capacities and abilities so they can share in the promise of this nation.

The how of BROC's existence goes back to 1964, when a notion called "community action" emerged from President Kennedy's Committee on Juvenile Delinquency and Youth Crime.
