About BRC Homeless Outreach
Outreach staff members operate in the transit system 24 hours a day. Through this program, which BRC has operated since 2005, BRC provides outreach and case management services to humanely assist homeless individuals to permanently relocate from MTA properties. The program serves the New York City Metropolitan Area including the boroughs of Manhattan, The Bronx, Brooklyn and Queens as well as Nassau, Suffolk and Westchester Counties. Clients are engaged and assessed with the goal of connecting them with housing and essential services.

We operate 27 programs throughout New York City, including outreach programs, residential and outpatient treatment programs for mental illness and substance abuse, and permanent and transitional housing. BRC employs nearly 700 full-time and part-time employees. BRC is where people come to change their lives, and our programs and staff enable that change to happen. Our guiding philosophy is to offer a hand-up, not a hand-out; helping people to help themselves and thereby helping them achieve lasting solutions.
