Bowery Residents' Committee, Inc.

Do you enjoy the written word? Are you familiar with proper form and function in a poem? Do you have a passion for putting pen to paper, or fingers pressed to keyboard, expressing your thoughts and ideas through short stories? Have you wanted to read your work aloud and inspire others to do the same? If so, our small creative writing workshop is the perfect volunteer position for you. In an effort to bring freeform thoughts, hopes, dreams and ideas to the written word, we encourage our clients and residents to participate in various writing exercises, possibly reading their work aloud, sharing their ideas with one another. And we can use your skill; either by helping them put their words to paper, reading their aloud for them and more.

Mission Statement

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


BRC: Helping People to Reclaim Lives Lost . BRC is a leading provider of housing and services to thousands of New York City's neediest individuals. Offering a hand up, not a hand out, 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.
