Mission Minded

A word from David P. Jones, President & CEO

Hope starts with a meal this Easter

When you see your child take a first step, it can bring a flood of emotions! While the distance the child travels isn't great; it's a milestone and the beginning of a lifelong journey.

The same is true of any great journey—for children or adults. Those first steps are so important!

For men and women who come to The Bowery Mission, a nourishing meal is like that first step. It can seem like an ordinary part of the day, but it's a pivotal moment in their journey to a restored life.

Once a hungry or homeless neighbor's physical needs are addressed, we're able to begin nourishing their soul.

"Though you have made me see troubles, many and bitter, you will restore my life again..."
– Psalm 71:30

Through life-transforming programs that include educational assessment, career guidance, spiritual counseling and life skills training, men and women take those second, third and fourth steps on their path to self-sufficiency.

Your compassionate support of The Bowery Mission serves as a trustworthy companion for New Yorkers in need as they find their way. There may be many twists and turns ahead on the journey, but because of you, they are never alone.

As Lisa, Sonia and Christopher—who you can read about this month in our newsletter—experience the joy of Easter this season, know that they are thanking God for your role in guiding them toward new life, too.

Thank you for supporting The Bowery Mission to give meals and new hope to New Yorkers in need this Easter season.
