The Boguechitto Community Development Foundation, Inc. (“BCDF”) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation organized in Dallas County, Marion Junction, Alabama, for the purpose of general development of the community to include building and running a community center, running senior citizen nutritional and activity programs, youth development, after school tutoring, and summer art/music enrichment & literacy camp.
The foundation is concerned about the community development. We have partnered with the Dallas County Commission, Dallas County Extension System, and the Ala-Tom RC&D Council for assistance. There is not an educational or activity center, no corner store, gas station, fire department, grocery store nor a community center. Therefore, The BCDF is using the facility at the New Vernon CP Church for summer camp and other activities. The foundation purchased two acres of land to develop for the community. We have had the property excavated, trees and tree stumps removed. We are now ready to begin phase 3 of our project to build the foundation up to build a Regional Cultural Enrichment Educational Campus with a walking trail and volunteer fire department. This facility will provide service for underserved senior citizens and youth in Marion Junction, Marion, Uniontown, Safford, Orrville, Beloit, Alberta, and other surrounding areas.
