When community members and organizations join their resources and dream together, we can improve economic stability, increase opportunity, and develop healthier lifestyles.

New industries continue to relocate to the growing rural community of Bastrop County. This creates a need to identify and create relevant career pathways to provide all working-age individuals in Bastrop County. When the community works together to create access to careers, both individuals and their families across the county benefit.  BCACH and its local business partners create opportunities to learn new skills and increase their confidence.

The powerful collaboration among BCACH partners removes barriers for Bastrop County residents to earn a living wage and thrive. Not only are individuals and their families impacted, but our local businesses see benefit from having access to qualified individuals who live locally.
