Bhutanese Community of Central Ohio
Every day, the BCCO provides vital direct services, education, empowerment and hope
to the newly resettled 25,000+ Bhutanese refugee population in Central Ohio,
and serves as a national model and resource.

OUR Community-centered Model
As the trusted non-profit with a strong track record of serving the 25,000+ and growing Bhutanese and broader communities, we strive to be a ‘One-Stop-Shop’ for the community's needs and aspirations. Partnerships with groups like the Ohio Benefit Bank, Medicaid Managed Care Plan, ADAMH and many other public-private entities help address needs here at the community center and out in the community. We all grow stronger through partnerships!
The BCCO builds relationships with other communities through cultural exchange, language and learning, and through partnership building. The BCCO aspires to become part of the mainstream culture at the same time preserving its cultural values, language, and tradition.
