Governor Paterson Recognizes BRC

In early October, Governor David Paterson and OASAS Commissioner Karen Carpenter Palumbo announced the release of the Strategic Plan for New York State's Addiction Services System. A critical component of the plan is the creation of permanent housing for people in recovery. Identifying BRC as a "nationally recognized service leader," the Plan acknowledges our successful work and designates BRC to receive a 2008 Samaritan Grant, which will enable BRC to provide permanent housing for an additional 50 chronically homeless individuals in recovery.
