Mission Minded

A word from David P. Jones, President & CEO

Your compassion warms the city for homeless neighbors

David Jones, The Bowery Mission President and CEO

When you see a homeless person on the streets, it can feel overwhelming. The compassion in your heart moves you to want to help; but you're not sure how. It's especially hard on winter nights when you're bustling along as quickly as possible to your next warm destination.

I get it. I feel the same thing, even as President of The Bowery Mission. But I also have great hope, because I know that life-saving care is just around the corner at The Bowery Mission. And help is here, because of you!

Your support covers our city with warmth and compassion every night.

Last year, friends like you helped to provide 97,300 nights of shelter for men like Luis, who shares his story this month in our newsletter. You're also providing essential care for neighbors at risk of pneumonia, hypothermia, frostbite and other life-threatening illnesses through our free medical clinic and through the "Don't Walk By" campaign.

There is no such thing as a mild winter in New York City. But thanks to you, nutritious meals, a warm bed and comprehensive care are readily available for anyone seeking help.

It's hard to imagine what homeless neighbors face each winter, but I do know one thing: your support covers our city with warmth and compassion every night.

Thank you for your generosity!
