Welcome to the Bethel Rural Community Organization located in historic Western North Carolina. BRCO is the oldest community service organization in Haywood County and has been recently recognized by the WNC Communities as a "Community of Promise".
Through fund raisers, members support the schools in Bethel, a food pantry and actively work on farmland and historic preservation issues. We also have a benevolence committee that works closely with our schools to assist the families of children who may need some financial help.
We are headquartered in the historic Bethel Presbyterian Church, which celebrated its 125th anniversary in 2010. We hold our meetings there as well as public educational meetings.
