Birmingham Regional Empowerment and Development Center, Inc. (BREAD),  was incorporated in December, 2003.  The mission and vision of the organization is to equip and empower students and their families for success while instilling and inspiring all participants with courage, confidence and character. We were awarded the Excellence in Extended Day Programming Award by the State of Alabama Department of Education.  With this award the agency received recognition as a model program to train area after-school and community based organization's staff to conduct quality after school and summer enrichment programming.  Through our children’s programs , we currently partner with seven schools in the surrounding community and provide after school and summer enrichment programs to more than 125 Pre K through Eighth grade students. I


To equip and prepare students, their parents, and other adults for success.


The programs at the BREAD Center focus on developing well rounded individuals through instruction, information, and inspiration.  The program serves as a bridge to strengthen and renew children and their parents; and strives to produce self-esteem, self-reliance, and self-respect. 

Our program further cultivates creative vision for every participant, child and adult alike, in an effort to motivate and empower them to achieve and exceed every goal.

In addition, BREAD partners with the National Institute of Health in implementing the “WE CAN” program.  We Can stands for “Ways to Enhance Children’s Activity & Nutrition”.  We Can! is a national educational program designed for parents and caregivers to help children  stay at a healthy weight.
