The Black Caucus Comes To New Brunswick
New Brunswick, NJ (March 4, 2009) - Community activist, author, motivational speaker and real estate consultant Cedrick Goodman says it’s official. After a careful examination and assessment of his community he realized that there were many areas and components missing that were not addressing some of the needs within the African American community and decided to do something about it. Instead of complaining or waiting on others, he decided to establish The B.C. Community Development Corp. a newly formed Non-Profit Organization.
Mr. Goodman, a life long resident says it was a tedious process that took about five months to complete, but worth it. The IRS granted our application to become tax exempt and officially classified us as a 501 (c) 3 Non-Profit Organization on 2/17/09. The Black Caucus of New Brunswick mission statement and goals will be to establish additional programs and services that will enhance the community as a whole, but whose target audience will be that of the African American community. We feel this group is under served and under represented in such areas as finance, jobs, affordable housing, community & economic development opportunities, educational programs, youth development and re-entry programs designed to help those released from prison re-enter back into society to become productive members in our community.
Although we are currently in the organizational and developmental stages, however effective immediately we will be expanding our relationships within the community and begin the process of reaching out and requesting financial support from the public and private sectors in the form of grants and donations, which will be used to fund our programs, and to cover administrative, and operating costs. We will review all areas that allow for partnerships with organizations, businesses, churches, federal and state entities, and others whose mission statement reflects a true commitment of progression towards inclusion and the betterment of society. Mr. Goodman also says that with the passage of the recent federal stimulus package our timing could not be more suitable.
Those who wish to support our organization can submit their tax deductible donations to: The B.C. Community Development Corp c/o Cedrick Goodman at New Millennium Bank located at 57 Livingston Ave, New Brunswick, NJ 08901
