BAUW is a locally owned, locally operated, volunteer-driven nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting quality health and human service programs that make our community a stronger, better place. BAUW partners and collaborates with local agencies, organizations, civic groups and local government to find lasting solutions to the highest priority problems in our community.

Your BAUW focuses on the areas of Education, Health and Financial Stability, the building blocks for a good quality of life. We are also committed to supporting programs and initiatives that help meet basic needs such as food and safe housing.

BAUW assumes the responsibility of fund raising for our agencies, so they can devote more of their resources on providing the programs which meet the needs of Barrington residents.

A full 100% of the funds allocated to our agency programs are used to provide services to residents within the Barrington CUSD 220 boundaries. The money raised here stays here.
