The Bowery Residents’ Committee and Furnish Green
Furnish Green recently participated in sponsoring the 2014 BRC Jr. Board Spring Benefit on May 1st, an event in which 100% of the proceeds go to the Bowery Residents’ Committee and its mission to break the cycle of homelessness! We are proud to have been able to donate some items to their cause, and to help bring additional success to the event.
What is the Bowery Residents’ Committee (BRC)?
Founded in 1971 by lodgers of Bowery flophouses who wanted to improve their lives, BRC is today a leading provider of housing and services to well over ten thousand of New York City’s neediest individuals. Offering a hand up, not a hand out, BRC asks: What can we do for you? BRC sees the potential in each person it serves and provides each the opportunity to find it through a robust continuum of housing and nonresidential programs offering health, mental health, treatment for addictions, vocational services, elder services, and supportive communities in which to live. Today BRC operates a continuum of 28 programs throughout New York, with a fiscal year 2013 budget of $62 million, over 650 employees, and hundreds more registered volunteers.
