About this organization






Brooklyn Community Housing & Services, Inc. (BCHS) is committed to ending homelessness in Brooklyn and empowering all the residents of Fort Greene and the surrounding neighborhoods - our home community. We provide safe, clean supportive housing each year for nearly 1,000 women, children and men who had been homeless, and help them learn how to live productively and independently, with dignity, and with hope. BCHS has helped thousands who were in crisis achieve independence over the last 40 years and ready to help thousands more in the future, until the day that homelessness no longer exists, and until the day that our local communities are as socially rich and as economically vital as possible.


Mental health and housing - operates an 18 bed transitional community residence that offers mental health counseling, medication management, daily living skills training, substance abuse services, health services, recreational activities, and the development of socialization and self-advocacy skills for single adults with a serious and persistent mental illness.
