Dear Friends,

We are thrilled to announce that B1C is expanding this summer to a second NEW flagship home on the east side of Stamford – 417 Shippan Avenue. This is a tremendous way to advance our mission of supporting the integration of immigrants and their families into a new community.

This NEW flagship location will become B1C’s primary home in Stamford. We will provide programs at both locations, as we will continue to operate at our 75 Selleck Street site on a smaller scale out of the second floor.

As we look into the next decade, we remain committed to leveraging our abilities to make a greater impact. We can’t wait to create a home with you on the east side with the original soul and spirit of B1C!
