Calling All Party Planners and Hosts!
Bowery Residents' Committee, Inc.
Located in Harlem on 132nd Street, Cecil Ivory House is a 24 bed transitional housing program targeting formerly homeless clients who are either mentally ill or dually diagnosed as mentally ill and chemically addicted. The mission of this program is to provide a safe and supportive environment where residents take part in rehabilitation interventions that will assist them in the attainment of their work, social and community living goals. A variety of services are available, including case management, substance abuse groups, medication monitoring, daily skills training and recreational activities. Now is your chance to step up and help us in our goals!
Do you enjoy socializing, running game nights, showing movies or turning the stereo up a bit for a little dancing? Are you able to introduce yourself, share a few jokes, spread some smiles and host a small party? If so, the residents of Cecil Ivory would love to have you host a small Friday Night Social. We’ll provide the games, snacks and music; you just need to bring the smiles and good times! We are looking to start this up at 6:30pm and make it a bi-weekly event. So put on your party shirt and give me a call!
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.

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.
