Family Shelters

BronxWorks operates three family residences in the Bronx that can each house a total of 360 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.”
