The COVID-19 pandemic has compelled us to cancel our “Feels Like Home” Gala, which was scheduled for May 6th. Please know that in response to this crisis BCHS is focusing all its efforts on addressing the health and safety of our community and meeting the needs of our formerly homeless and at-risk residents during this unprecedented time. We believe that BCHS’ mission to support the City’s most vulnerable individuals and help them live with dignity and hope is more important than ever.

Here at BCHS we are on the frontlines and see this first hand. The formerly homeless residents and families we serve often have acute and chronic medical conditions due to years of hardship on the street. That is why we want you to know that BCHS staff are working night and day to protect the health and stability our formerly homeless clients and doing everything we can to serve the community during this time of crisis.

We need your help. As many of you are aware our annual Gala is BCHS’ primary fundraising event, which we rely on to generate support for the urgently needed housing and mental health services that we provide to the thousands of at-risk women, children and men who come through our doors.

For those of you who planned to attend, sponsor, or otherwise support this year’s event and haven’t yet, please consider making a 100% tax-deductible donation of the same level you had planned, or more, if you are able during this critical moment. If you have any questions about the “Feels Like Home” Gala or BCHS, please reach out directly to our Chief Development Officer, Kathleen Rivera.

At BCHS we have always felt that everyone who comes through our doors can move from crisis to community, and today is no different. Please stay tuned for more news about our efforts and virtual opportunities to stay connected. And if you have questions, don’t hesitate to reach out.

We hope you will consider making a gift towards BCHS’ essential work using our secure online site during this critical time.

On behalf of the Board, staff and clients of BCHS, a heartfelt thank you to all our generous 2020 Gala supporters, sponsors, Honorees, Host Committee members and friends for supporting our efforts and for helping to raise funds for our life-saving programs. We hope you and your families remain healthy and safe and we look forward to celebrating with you at our 2021 Gala!

Thank you to our community of supporters:
