Bowery Residents Committee, Inc. (“BRC”)

For continued support for the Program Coordinator who supports staff development and service delivery at the Horizons Workforce Development Program at Landing Road, an employment-focused shelter and housing facility in the Bronx. The Horizons Program is their signature program that provides employment services to homeless adults working to achieve independence and stability. Horizons uses an individualized approach to help residents identify and develop professional strengths, thereby giving them the skills to find and maintain employment independently. Landing Road is based on a new financing model developed by BRC that involves building a shelter as well as some affordable housing on the same site, and using income received from operating the shelter to permanently subsidize the housing, making it lower-priced to a low-income population. BRC is a leading provider of housing and services to NYC’s neediest, helping nearly 10,000 individuals each year develop the tools to move from homelessness to improved health and self-sufficiency.
