40 years ago, a group of concerned citizens and local clergy from Downtown Brooklyn saw the emerging crisis of homelessness and felt called to action. They formed what would become Brooklyn Community Housing and Services, and committed themselves to bringing people from crisis to community, and to working towards the end of homelessness in our Borough.
BCHS is celebrating this milestone anniversary with our 40th Anniversary campaign. The campaign will highlight BCHS’ historic role in the development of the supportive housing field, the groundbreaking work that the agency is currently performing, and innovative new initiatives that are underway. We will culminate our celebration with a May Gala featuring a performance by the Grammy award winning artist Norah Jones! Stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks.
We hope you will join us throughout the year as we recognize the extraordinary leaders, Board, staff, supporters and friends who have made BCHS’ efforts possible, who have dedicated themselves to helping the Borough’s neediest, and who have helped thousands of people who used to be vulnerable find safe, permanent homes. And please join us on May 15th as we rock the night away with Norah Jones!
