Andrew Goffe, Committee Chair
What keeps you the most motivated and engaged with BRC?
BRC offers the most comprehensive services for homeless individuals who are trying to improve their lives: the management and staff at BRC are motivated and engaged, and are innovative in coming up with new ways to improve outcomes for our clients.
If BRC were to disappear tomorrow, what would be the biggest loss?
There would be a gaping hole in the services that are offered to homeless individuals -- most city shelters are Band-Aids that provide temporary shelter but not much more than that; BRC helps people deal with substance abuse, find permanent shelter, and find employment; BRC breaks the cycle of homelessness.
If you were to give someone one reason for why they should support BRC, what would that reason be?
Of the organizations that help the less fortunate in NYC, BRC is in a class by itself.
