BRC

Now that senior centers across the city are now allowed to reopen, the BRC program in the lower east side will do so at 25% capacity. Friendly, cheerful volunteers are needed to help with creating small cold meal kits, as well as distribute to those seniors that opt to stop by. Hours are 10:30am to 12:30pm weekdays.

Please note, due to the current pandemic, all in-person volunteers will be asked for the following:

    • Proof of COVID-19 vaccination prior to your assignment
    • Proof of your booster if you have met the time frame that would allow you to receive one:
      • If you received the single dose Johnson and Johnson vaccine you are eligible for the booster after 2 months
      • If you received the two-dose Pfizer vaccine, you are eligible for the booster 5 months after receiving your second dose
      • If you received the two-dose Moderna vaccine, you are eligible for the booster 5 months after receiving your second dose
    • Temperature check upon arrival for your shift
    • Masks must be worn at all times when onsite
    • Regular, ongoing hand-washing during your shift
    • Social distancing guidelines must be followed
Any/all potential volunteers must complete a New Volunteer Registration form, which can be found at the following link: http://www.brc.org/volunteer-registration . Once received, you will then be sent an invitation to participate in an orientation via Zoom.

Mission Statement

Helping people reclaim lives lost: We restore hope and dignity by offering opportunities for health and self-sufficiency.

Description

BRC: Helping People to Reclaim Lives Lost. BRC is a leading provider of housing and services to thousands of New York City's individuals in need. Offering a hand-up, not a handout, BRC asks one simple question: What can we do for you? BRC sees the potential in each individual it serves and provides each the opportunity to find it. Whatever our clients may seek, BRC has it, 24/7/365: outreach to homeless people living in public spaces, drug treatment, mental health care, comprehensive medical services, vocational services, and supportive communities in which to live. BRC succeeds by building trust with the people we serve; listening, and then acting, providing housing - both temporary and permanent. Building trust takes time, and a compassionate, dedicated staff of almost 1,000 employees and 1,000+ volunteers that persevere 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year, never giving up.
