    When you're homeless, there's no such thing as a "mild winter" in NYC.

  • 2016 Milestones

    Thanks to friends like YOU, we're giving hope to homeless and hungry New Yorkers!


Since 1879, The Bowery Mission has served homeless, hungry and poor New Yorkers. Meals, shelter, and medical care lead to residential programs that offer men and women the opportunity to transform their lives. Children get a positive first chance through summer camp, mentoring and family support. A vital part of the Lower East Side, The Bowery Mission now offers new hope to neighborhoods like Harlem and the South Bronx.
