Description & History

Founded in 1971, BRC is today a leading provider of housing and services to well over ten thousand of New York City’s neediest individuals. Offering a hand up, not a hand out, BRC asks: What can we do for you? BRC sees the potential in each person it serves and provides each the opportunity to find it through a robust continuum of housing and nonresidential programs offering health, mental health, treatment for addictions, vocational services, elder services, and supportive communities in which to live. Today BRC operates a continuum of 27 programs throughout New York.
