This Valentine’s Day BronxWorks partnered with the Bronx Polar Bears Club to raise awareness about homelessness. On Saturday, February 14th, with kickoff activities that began at 11:00 AM, the Bronx Polar Bears braved the winter waters of Long Island Sound to remind us of the challenges of living on the street.  Their five minute dip was symbolic of the bone-chilling cold homeless men and women must deal with every minute of each day in the winter.

Each year the BronxWorks Homeless Outreach Team (HOT) makes thousands of contacts with street homeless men and women. Engagement is the first step in bringing about change. A trip to our Living Room/Safe Haven or a safe bed at a church that collaborates with BronxWorks is the middle step before we help street homeless persons obtain permanent housing.
