Bowery Residents' Committee
This 200-bed shelter is designed for homeless men who are in need of job training and employment. Located at BRC's new Landing Road facility in the Bronx, this new shelter opened in January 2018. Similar to the Palace Employment Residence, the Reaching New Heights Residence provides temporary housing for a period of six to nine months. During this time, clients are guided through a structured continuum of treatment and training designed to give them the skills they need to address any substance abuse and/or health issues and to find and maintain permanent employment and housing. The Reaching New Heights Residence is funded by the NYC Department of Homeless Services.
