BRC started operating the Boulevard Residence in July 2009 as a homeless shelter that now houses more than 100 mentally ill men on the path from homelessness to home.The program provides a complete range of mental health services, including stabilization, medication management, case management, and medical services, with an ultimate goal of placing clients into supportive housing within nine months. This exhibition and reception are great opportunities to learn more about the Boulevard and to meet some of our incredible clients and staff.

Our sincere thanks goes out to the New York Public Library and surrounding neighborhood for their ongoing support and encouragement.

From the Desk of Muzzy

Rather than create wealth for private developers, could we use the same shelter contract to create housing for low-income people?
