Organization Description: Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation (Restoration), the nation's first community development corporation, relentlessly pursues strategies to close gaps in family and community wealth to ensure all families in Central Brooklyn are prosperous and healthy. To that end, we partner with residents and businesses to improve the quality of life of Central Brooklyn by fostering economic self sufficiency, enhancing family stability and growth, promoting the arts and culture and transforming the neighborhood into a vibrant place to live, work and visit. As Central Brooklyn experiences gentrification, economic growth and investments, our strategy is to ensure integration rather than displacement of low and moderate income residents, especially people of color.

Restoration was established in 1967 through grassroots activism and the bipartisan support of then Senators Robert F. Kennedy and Jacob Javits. With a 51 year track record, Restoration serves some 50,000 annually across the borough with a focus on the predominantly minority and low income Central Brooklyn communities of Bedford Stuyvesant, Brownsville, Bushwick and East New York. These communities are faced with poverty and unemployment that far exceed state and city averages, some of the lowest graduation rates in New York, and health disparities that disproportionately impact low income households of color.

Restoration’s programs work together to promote the social, financial and physical health and well-being of residents and the community at large. Efforts span affordable housing, economic development, workforce development and asset building, education, financial counseling, health, and the arts and culture. Our efforts begin with the individual and involves changing household and community level spending patterns that undermine the wealth creation of low and moderate income households, while simultaneously advocating for policy and systems reform.

Restoration is a 501(c) 3 nonprofit corporation, with an annual operating budget ranging from $14 – 15 million, and a full-time staff of approximately 130.

The Center for Healthy Neighborhoods

In alignment with Restoration’s mission to close the wealth gap in Central Brooklyn, and recognizing the virtuous cycle of health and wealth, the Center for Healthy Neighborhoods aims to change the structural conditions that drive the inequities in chronic disease in Central Brooklyn, focusing on policies, systems and environmental change. Our work directly addresses health, including access to affordable and healthy food, opportunities for an active lifestyle, and mental health and wellness. Moreover, every strategy also addresses the the social determinants of health such as neighborhood conditions, employment, business opportunities, finances, transportation, education and/or housing.

Since its inception, Restoration has engaged in building healthy neighborhoods and addressing the social determinants of health. We’ve attracted supermarkets and health facilities to the community and enhanced commercial corridors. Several years ago, Restoration took a more direct approach to addressing health by leading borough efforts to reduce health disparities related to healthy eating, the built environment and active living, and alcohol consumption and tobacco use among communities of color. Highlights of our accomplishments to date include our Farm to Early Care Initiative that has reached more than 1,500 preschoolers across thirty early care sites and leadership of the Better Bike Share Partnership, which has led to expansion and increased usage of Citi Bike in Bedford Stuyvesant, and to the development of Citi Bike for All, a Citi Bike discount for SNAP recipients.
