BK LVL UP connects like-minded organizations and individuals in their work to uplift and nourish local communities by building wealth through knowledge, health, and financial assets. We are focused on changing the paradigm of community development that often benefits real estate value more than the lives of community members.
BK LVL UP understands that small scale organizations often act as de facto community resource centers without adequate staffing or funding. This is a testament to the strength of trusted grass-roots organizations while also a wake-up call to the serious lack of resources in underserved communities.
BK LVL UP mobilizes initiatives led by people who have personal stakes in the communities that they serve. Our work aims to focus economic development around improving existing residents’ lives (not just property values and aesthetics).
