The strength and resilience of BCHS’ formerly homeless residents are truly inspiring, and serve as a reminder that homelessness is not intractable. At BCHS we witness individuals handling issues of trauma and hardship everyday with remarkable courage, dignity and grace. While each resident’s story is unique, their journeys are very much the same: getting help during a time of crisis; shedding their isolation and joining a group of supportive peers at BCHS; working with staff to develop the tools they need to learn how to live independently; and then really moving towards a more hopeful future.
We are pleased to introduce you to some of our wonderful residents:
Formerly homeless and at-risk individuals are housed at BCHS each year
Of BCHS’ formerly homeless residents maintain their housing with the agency or move on to greater independence each year
