Brooklyn Community Services (BCS) manages the Transitional Living Community (TLC), a temporary shelter that helps mentally ill women experiencing homelessness find permanent housing. In 2010, TLC accommodated 142 women, 61 of whom made the transition to permanent housing.
The majority of TLC residents are diagnosed with severe depression, manic-depressive illness, or psychosis. In addition to providing 40 beds for temporary shelter purposes, TLC also supports residents through case management, psychiatric care, group and individual counseling, vocational services, and physical therapy. Once residents are ready to move into their permanent homes, BCS strives to supply them with several essential household items so that they can create comfortable homes and get fresh starts. Although TLC is substantially funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, government funds dont cover the costs of providing the women with these household goods.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help Brooklyn Community Services supply essential household items to women transitioning out of homelessness. If G-Team members raise $500, then Brooklyn Community Services can provide two women with Helping Home Project packs that include dishes, silverware, towels, pots and pans, a shower curtain with rings, a coffeemaker, two glasses, and a queen- or twin-size bed-in-a-bag comforter set plus a sheet set, pillows, and mattress cover. Each additional $250 raised will be used to give another woman transitioning out of homelessness a Helping Home Project pack.
Unlike traditional Groupon deals, G-Team campaigns typically don't offer you a "discount" or "savings." So "buyer" bewarewhen you click "Buy" to donate your time or money to a worthwhile G-Team cause, the only discount you may receive is 100% off free, priceless karma. Read more about G-Team.
