To provide support for BRC’s Horizons Workforce Development Program as they continue to address their clients’ financial, housing, and social-emotional needs, thereby helping them to find and maintain lasting self-sufficiency through enhanced housing and employment. The Horizons Program provides person-centered services, enabling individuals recently experiencing homelessness — who are now living at BRC’s shelters — to achieve independence through employment. Horizons uses an individualized approach to help their shelters’ residents identify and develop professional strengths, thereby strengthening their skills to find and maintain employment independently, well beyond their participation in the program. BRC is a leading provider of housing and other services to New York City’s neediest, assisting over 8,000 individuals yearly to develop the tools by which to move from homelessness and hopelessness to better health and greater self-sufficiency.
