Dear BCM Community:

In response to the COVID-19/Coronavirus public health emergency, until further notice, all case management, emergency financial appointments, and education will take place virtually. The helpline will continue to operate. Budget for Life and Foundation 3 clients should work directly with their case managers on arranging virtual meetups.

In an abundance of caution and in keeping with CDC guidance, BCM will close both facilities during this time. This includes the food pantry. THRIFTique will also be closed for business and clothing certificates. Pantry and thrift donations will not be accepted during this time. Please call United Way at 211 for an updated list for food and clothing assistance.

How can you help BCM help our clients? We are requesting significant financial assistance so that we will be prepared for the coming months when out-of-work wage earners will be at most risk for evictions and homelessness. This is a time when we need to come together to support those most at risk. Click below to donate now.

Thank you,

Keeva Kase
President & CEO
