About the Board

The Bucks County Human Relations Council (BCHRC) was formed as an outgrowth of the Violence Prevention Task Force (VPTF) force established by the Bucks County Commissioners in May, 1995. A nine-member board, they are dedicated to promoting the value of diversity within the county and to serving as a resource and referral service for citizens who believe they have been a victim of hate crimes or discrimination in housing, employment, equal access or fair treatment. There is no fee for services. For more information, please visit
