Community Hope Resource Center
As many Manhattan neighborhoods prosper, East Harlem continues to struggle. According to the latest U.S. Census statistics, over half of the working age population in East Harlem doesn't have a job, and 37 percent of those 25 and older don't have a high school degree. The median income of households is $24,000, leaving 40% of residents below the poverty level.
The Bowery Mission's Community Hope Resource Center in East Harlem applies the resources of one of New York City's most respected organizations and its partners to proactively address the unique needs of East Harlem and offer holistic hope and sustainable resources, beyond temporary aid.
The Community Hope Resource Center is a catalyst for life transformation in each client's life by offering free access to holistic benefits—such as legal counsel, medical care, vocational training and crisis intervention—all in one accessible place.
