To serve as the Hollygrove neighborhood’s premier institution for transforming youth through educational support, mentorship and spiritual development.
TCC aims to equip the youth of Hollygrove today with the tools to serve Hollygrove tomorrow.
In 1967, Rev. William Brown started TCC to bring the reconciliation of Jesus Christ to the racial divide in New Orleans. Since then we have worked with countless students and their families to transform lives by meeting physical and spiritual needs. His son, Kevin Brown, arrived in 1998 and we narrowed our focus to help children become leaders through summer day camps, after-school programs, youth groups and sleepaway camps. Jarvain Bingmon took over in 2013 and expanded our focus to support children from kindergarten through college and beyond with a very intentional goal of developing indigenous leadership. In March 2019, Carly Hill stepped into the role of Executive Director, bringing new ideas to continue to equip and empower the youth and families of Hollygrove.
We have worked to transform the community by rebuilding and painting homes, cleaning vacant lots, putting on "Family Fun Days", and helping to plant Level Ground Community Church. TCC has served to incubate and build capacity in other organizations that equip the under-resourced, including: Hollygrove Farm and Market, the Hollygrove Seniors Group, Pressing on Basketball Ministry, Carrollton- Hollygrove CDC and Healthy Start, for mothers and their children under 2 in Hollygrove.
We believe that each child should have access to every tool needed to allow them to reach their fullest potential.
