We are committed in our mission to help the homeless of New York City and are always happy to hear from others who have the same passion and desire to make a difference. Volunteers are critical in allowing us to continue in our work; we absolutely value our volunteers’ dedication and are pleased to hear from those that would like to join our team. Please take a moment to complete our New Volunteer registration form. Once received, we will send you an invitation to our next scheduled orientation so you can learn more about BRC, what we do within the community, and how you can help. Thank you.

While more people are working, wages aren’t rising fast enough to keep pace with the cost of living
At BRC we are constantly evolving to meet our clients ever-changing needs.
Lack of affordable housing options for low-income individuals is one of New York City's most defining challenges.
Having developed housing, we began to wonder if there was a way to cut out the middleman and turn the City’s need for shelter into a way to also solve the housing crisis.
BRC pioneered development of the “Safe Haven” program — a safer, more supportive, lower-stress alternative to traditional shelters.
More than 400 people have gone through the doors of this 20-room safe haven since 2008. 200 clients have been successfully placed in permanent housing.
