BCC has a variety of recovery-oriented housing options for the homeless in need of housing and on the path to recovery and independence.
Each location is unique and targets special populations such as pregnant and parenting women (and their children), transition age youth enrolled in ACT, those with disabilities, as well as those transitioning out of the criminal justice system.
The need for affordable housing remains paramount in our community and BCC remains committed to a solution.
Health Care Navigation
BCC’s health care navigators often work one on one with clients as they assess a client’s overall health and wellness needs, help establish SMART goals for behavioral change, provide health supports, serve as a health advocates in navigating the complex health delivery systems, and serve as champions of health and wellness. Health care navigators work collaboratively with other members of the BCC integrated health team, assuring that the patient’s voice is heard and their needs met. They assist with care coordination, often researching best solutions for client care while assuring continuity and quality.
“It was a privilege to meet you last week when I brought my son in for an evaluation of his prescriptions. I was impressed with your thorough technique in evaluation of him. I especially appreciated the amount of time you gave him in the office visit.”.
Community Reinforcement and Family Training
CRAFT is a skills- based training program designed specifically for families of a loved one actively abusing drugs and/or alcohol and refuses to get help.
You (and other family members) will learn skills that will help you cope with your loved one’s addiction through communication and problem solving with the ultimate goal being your loved one’s “acceptance” that he/she is ready for help. Additionally, and just as importantly, you’ll learn ways to take care of you that are healthy and positive.
