Braddock Redux’s founder, John Fetterman had a vision of a vacant church becoming a center of community activity and positive momentum. He imagined groups of people with wide varieties of skills, knowledge, resources, drive, and abilities sharing ideas and developing collaborative efforts. His vision became Braddock Redux. Our mission seeks to mobilize teens, young adults, and like-minded people of all ages from both within and outside the community for the purpose of the overall betterment of the Braddock area through training opportunities, art initiatives, green initiatives, employment opportunities, the creative re-use of existing structures, and through the flexibility to respond to other opportunities that arise. Braddock Redux is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
