Bowery Residents Committee, Inc. (“BRC”)

Posted on August 6, 2018

To support a Program Coordinator who will support staff development and service delivery as they launch the Horizons Workforce Development Program at Landing Road, a new employment-focused shelter and housing facility in the Bronx. This expansion will nearly double the capacity of the existing Horizons Program, their signature program that provides employment services to homeless men and women 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 housing on the same site, and using income received from operating the shelter to permanently subsidize the housing, making it affordable to a low-income population.
