BCHS programs prevent homelessness for more than 1,200 formerly homeless and at-risk children, women and men each year.

BCHS provides significant savings to tax-payers because supportive housing at BCHS is much less expensive than alternatives.

  • 95% of BCHS’ formerly homeless residents maintain their housing with the agency or move on to greater independence each year.
  • BCHS provides housing for 412 formerly homeless individuals each day. We are developing 550 new units of housing to be opened in coming years, and are helping to open a new cultural arts center as well.
  • BCHS programs help domestic violence survivors, seniors, Veterans, families with children, people with mental illness, individuals returning from incarceration, and low-income working adults.
  • BCHS’ unique program model has been studied by government and non-profit officials from throughout the U.S., the United Kingdom, New Zealand, Australia and Israel.
