CODE RED

With temperatures estimated above 90 degrees, life on the streets can go from unbearable to deadly. When the temperature is 90 degrees or higher, The City of New York will declare a “CODE RED”. The BronxWorks Homeless Outreach Team will be working hard to help our most vulnerable neighbors get off the streets and into shelter.

Designated cooling centers are open during a CODE RED all around New York City and the Bronx. If you are living without air conditioning and need a place to cool down contact 311 or click here to find a cooling center near you. Please check on your neighbors, especially the elderly and sick.

BronxWorks Statement On 2024 NYC HOPE Count

June 14, 2024 – Our hearts ache at the latest HOPE Count data that reflects an increase in NYC’s most vulnerable population, those that are unhoused. While the increase is minimal here in the Bronx, we recognize there is much work to be done to ensure the unhoused receive the support they need to get back on their feet. Our Outreach Teams continue to work tirelessly above and below ground with our city and state partners to ensure access to vital services organizations like BronxWorks provides to our homeless neighbors, and we will continue to advocate for more resources to reverse the trend.
