BCM was founded in 1987 by six churches as an emergency assistance provider. Recognizing that some people need longer-term assistance in order to achieve stability, BCM established a continuum of services to assist individuals in varying stages of crisis, introducing the Transitional Housing Program in 2001 to help homeless families move to permanent housing. In 2005, BCM launched The 70/30 Project to help low-income workers at risk of eviction, providing financial assistance, case management and money management education. Today, BCM is supported by 30 churches, along with businesses, foundations, civic groups, and individuals, including more than 300 volunteers.
