BRC Serving on Frontlines of the Covid-19 Crisis

BRC continues to serve New York's most vulnerable on the frontlines of the Covid-19 crisis.

Dear Friend, 
As the Covid-19 crisis continues BRC remains resilient and present in meeting the needs of New York’s most vulnerable. Each day, dedicated BRC staff are working within the community, conducting outreach to the unsheltered in our transit system, offering programming to those within our shelters, safe havens, and housing, supporting those experiencing disruptions in their ability to participate in the workforce, and providing critical health and mental health services to the thousands within our care. 
We continue to adapt to the rapidly changing environment to do all that we can to maintain the wellness and safety of our clients and staff. Among many other actions, we are spending more time in individual engagement, are practicing social distancing within the challenging congregate setting, and are delivering food to seniors and others that are unable to leave their households. 
During this unprecedented time, BRC's committed professionals continue to provide essential services to over 3,000 people a day. In order to support the continuity of these operations, we have and will continue to incur additional costs. Please consider a gift toward these efforts. Your support will go a long way toward enabling BRC to continue providing essential services to New York City’s most vulnerable individuals during this crisis, effectively protect the staff that serve them, and help ensure BRC's continuity for the long term.  

Please Donate today 

While much is unknown about the future of the Covid-19 pandemic, BRC remains strong and devoted to supporting our clients throughout this crisis and into the future. As we have during every major public health crisis impacting New Yorkers over the past fifty years, BRC continues to look ahead toward a future of helping clients find a way home.

Rather than create wealth for private developers, could we use the same shelter contract to create housing for low-income people?
