Supporting residents to achieve their life goals

We know that the homes we create provide a critical platform for people to move forward with their lives. To empower people and help them to reach towards their goals and to live their lives with dignity and hope, some residents may also need support and opportunities to participate in employment, training, social and community activities.

BHC are funding a range of programs and services to support residents achieve their life goals including:
