About

Located on the Lower East Side on Pitt Street, Los Vecinos Apartments is a co-ed 35 room permanent housing facility for formerly homeless men and women suffering from mental illness, substance abuse and HIV/AIDS. While providing permanent housing for its tenants, Los Vecinos also offers a variety of services aimed at helping clients stabilize their health, maintain their independence and build a community of support among peers. These services include case management, referrals to medical facilities and assistance managing health conditions, medication monitoring, health education, psychiatric management, entitlement support and money management, recreational activities, assistance with activities of daily living and free meals. Why not join the volunteer team and make a difference?

So you think collages are cool? Knitting is nice? Painting is positive? You look at art materials and all you see is potential? If this is your thing, we can sure use your talents! We currently run a mid-afternoon arts & crafts group every other Sunday and would love a volunteer with fresh and new ideas to join the team. You bring the ideas, we’ll provide the supplies!

PLEASE NOTE: In order to insure the integrity of the BRC volunteer program, as well as the well being of the clients we service, all interested parties must complete a New Volunteer Registration form and attend an orientation, prior to receiving an assignment. Apologies, but we are unable to accept walk-ins.
