PROGRAM DESCRIPTION:

In January 2008, BRC launched its third new low-threshold transitional housing program, the Lex Safe Haven. Funded by the NYC Department of Homeless Services, the Lex Safe Haven is aimed at moving long-term homeless people from church steps and other public spaces throughout the city. Currently, this congregate housing facility provides housing for up to 43 couples and single men and women. Similar to other low-demand BRC facilities, case managers at the Lex Safe Haven are focused on moving chronically street homeless individuals into permanent housing. Program participants are not required to maintain sobriety and do not have any curfew; the one requirement upon entering is that they actively work toward obtaining housing.
