In the late 1980s, the firm donated observations and other services related to the construction of BCHS’s facility in Fort Greene which provides a home and supportive services to a wide range of formally homeless residents coping with mental illness and other trauma. Since that time, Baxt Ingui has designed and help implement four of BCHS office and program spaces and advised BCHS on numerous design and construction matters. Ben Baxt serves on the board of the BCHS and many members of the Baxt Ingui are generous donors of time and financial support. To learn more, search bchands.org.
