Compassionate Care Programs
Since 1879 The Bowery Mission has met the short-term, emergency needs of New Yorkers caught in the cycles of poverty, hopelessness and dependencies of many kinds with compassionate care services - warm food, safe shelter, clothing and medical care.
Because we know that a simple act of kindness can be the first step toward a transformed life, we try to meet each need of those who come to The Bowery Mission's red doors with practical expressions of God's love — no questions asked, free of charge.
Last year, with help from our donors, we provided:
- 505,000 meals to men, women, and children in need
- 56,200 clothing items
- 44,700 bags of groceries
- 97,300 nights of shelter to homeless men and women
- 708 medical exams
- 211 crisis intervention referrals
