Coronavirus Update: BFTS will be operating throughout the COVID-19 crisis to help our homeless, who are among the MOST VULNERABLE.

We take the current enviroment very seriously and will be implementing strigent measures to ensure the safety of both our volunteers and our clients including ways to interact safely and/or without physical contact, as well as going out in teams of no more than three or four people. Keeping everyone safe and healthy is paramount concern.

To that end, our schedule for the next month will be influx and updated HERE regularly (and via email) as we work with the confines and fluidity of the COVID-19 climate and state and city laws.

If you have any questions, please email us at [email protected]
