BronxWorks operates three family residences in the Bronx that can each house a total of 276 homeless families at a time.
Every shelter unit provides:
- A cooking area
- Private bathrooms
Every building provides:
- Early childhood programs and activities for school-age children
- 24/7 security on site
- A sophisticated camera system
- Access to medical services
BronxWorks is committed to providing a safe and clean environment. Clients are required to meet with casework staff and take steps towards self-sufficiency.
It’s safe, it’s positive, they have activities and things for the kids to do, so it gives me a break in some of those areas.”
— Lucinda L., BronxWorks Resident
In 2021, BronxWorks made 142 permanent housing placements from the family shelters.
