Do you #BelieveInBHCHP? Rafael does, who says we brought his smile back! And so do our case manager Remy and our patient Carvel, who are working on Carvel's housing application together. If you love what we do, now is the time to help. This #GivingTuesday, our generous donors Marty and Martha challenged us with a $10,000 match, doubling your impact today. A gift of $25 will become $50. $50 will become $100. We hope you'll help us meet the challenge!

Inspired by The Clothesline Project, here are some of their thoughts on sexual violence.

Thanks for having us-we enjoyed meeting and interacting with both staff and patients and learned a lot." Thank you all so much!
