Permanent Housing That Supports Clients in Building Lasting Stability 

Over 550 households call BRC their permanent home, including single adults, couples, and families with children. In our supportive housing model, these clients secure leases and pay rent at a rate they can afford. If a crisis arises, BRC provides supportive services to help our tenants make a plan, catch up on back rent, and create a more stable future.

Single Room Occupancy (SRO) Apartments

BRC operates several Single Room Occupancy (SRO) apartments featuring a private, furnished room; a shared bathroom and kitchen; case management services; community rooms; laundry facilities; and optional communal meals.
