Get Involved

You make a difference in the lives of New Yorkers in need by enabling us to offer them a hand up instead of a handout. You can do so by attending an event, donating, volunteering, or joining our staff.

BRC's 2021
The Way Home Gala

June 16

Help us kick-off our year-long celebration of BRC's 50th Anniversary with the 2021 The Way Home Gala, premiering on-demand on June 7, 2021! Join us to celebrate a half century of providing a caring and effective pathway from homelessness to home!


No One Needs To Be Homeless

Your tax-deductible gifts help us continue this important work. With your gift, you are affirming your belief that no one needs to be homeless, that everyone who wants to change should have the opportunity to do so, and ensuring that we build a more caring and compassionate city.


BRC volunteers are crucial in our continuing effort to provide homeless New Yorkers with a hand up and a way home.

Frequently Asked Questions


What kind of volunteer positions are available at BRC?

To add a new question go to app settings and press "Manage Questions" button.Volunteer positions vary widely, from teaching ballroom dancing, to painting hallways, teaching English as a second language or assisting our staff during meal service. Take a look at the brief descriptions below. We're confident you will find something that fits your interest and availability.

Can my group of friends, work colleagues or neighbors volunteer together?

Absolutely! A number of our programs can put small groups of volunteers to work; the actual job, however, depends on the size, the time of day and area of interest. We encourage you to contact us for further information. We would also love to conduct onsite volunteer orientations or setting up an information table on your own premises. Just give us a call and we can discuss it.

I'm pretty limited in my availability because I work during the day. Is there anything I can do at night or on weekends?

Rest assured, we understand the pressures a job can bring and we are very aware of limited time and availability. Because most of our programs are 24-hour operations, we do need help in the evenings and weekends. Take a look at our volunteer needs. You'll probably find something that fits your schedule.

I have a special skill that I would like to offer BRC but I'm not sure you need it. What should I do?

You never know what we might need, whether it's writing a newsletter, or teaching our clients crochet or needlepoint. Some jobs require specific skill-sets, but others are really up to what you can bring. So register and let us know what you can offer.
