This 103-bed women’s shelter in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn serves a population suffering from multiple issues including mental illness, substance abuse and serious medical problems. The program offers the full range of case management services as well as on-site psychiatric and medical care. It also incorporates a workforce development component for women who can benefit from this service.
Whether through paints, yarn, markers, pencils, construction paper, or more, creating beauty from seemingly innocent articles is a fantastic outlet for everyone, and our clients are no different. We hope to introduce a weekly arts & crafts or knitting class to the women of 85 Lex, and we look to your skills and talents to make it happen. If you can provide the time, enthusiasm, knowledge and support, we can bring the materials and eager audience. Ideally, this would be held on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday evening, or perhaps a Sunday afternoon.
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.
We'll work with your schedule.
