All of Bridge of Grace's programs are created in response to the needs and concerns of Mount Vernon Park residents. Community listening tours and observational research, conducted in 2008 and 2015 determined BGCMC's primary focus areas: Crime Prevention, Childhood and Adult Education, and Life Skills Training & Personal Development.
During the 2015 listening effort, Mount Vernon Park residents communicated a few ways they wanted to see the neighborhood grow:(1) safer, not only to address existing crime , but also to provide mentorship, leadership and employment opportunities for our youth. (2) to make the neighborhood more beautiful.
For these reasons, BGCMC was led to produce MVP Landscaping LLC as a Christian-based business, which takes pride in and values the community we serve, aiming to grow indigenous leaders and inspire Christ-centered renewal.
