Coronavirus Update: BFTS is considered an “essential service” and is operating daily during the COVID-19 crisis to help the homeless, who are among the MOST VULNERABLE.
We take the current environment very seriously and have implemented stringent measures to ensure the safety of both our volunteers and our clients, including ways to interact safely while attending to the needs of the homeless.
Until further notice, we are limiting our street teams to two groups of no more than two or three people and adhering to social distancing protocol.
Keeping everyone safe and healthy is paramount concern.
During the Coronavirus pandemic, BFTS is hitting the streets throughout Manhattan, Bronx, Brooklyn and Queens with backpacks and COVID-fighting kits operating out of our van in each neighborhood we assist.
Because we are working at a faster pace and on a rolling schedule there is no sign up sheet. Instead, email [email protected], and one of us will reach out to register you.
If you live in an area you think we should be in, please let us know, as we encourage our volunteers to help us naviagate their neighborhoods.
Masks and Gloves will be provided and are MANDATORY for every volunteer.
If you have any questions, please contact our CEO, Jeffrey Newman at [email protected].
BFTS is an inclusive organization, providing a safe space for all its volunteers and clients, regardless of age, gender, gender identity, religion, politics, sexual orientation, ethnicity, race, disability or musical tastes. As such, we have a zero tolerance policy regarding harassment or discrimination, and bullying, of any kind, as well as any inappropriate behavior or contact, especially of a sexual nature, or verbal abuse.
