A Brighter Community Inc. got its start in 1925 when the United Way was known as the Community Chest pulling together 16 agencies in its first fund drive. At that time the center was known as the WCTU Day Nursery. The buyers for the land well known in Tampa’s history are J.A. Epps and J.G. Bedingfield. The trustees were listed as James W. Morris Jr. James Handly E.H. Robinson W. Raleigh Petteway and Howard P. Macfarlane. The nursery later became known as the Tampa Day nursery and still remains at the same location just north of downtown.

A Brighter Community Inc. is a non-profit United Way supported nationally accredited preschool and family support program.
