Compassionate Care Programs

Compassionate Care ProgramsSince 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:

  • 406,000 meals to men, women, and children in need
  • 44,100 clothing items
  • 44,700 bags of groceries
  • 91,500 nights of shelter to homeless men and women
  • 607 medical exams
  • 276 crisis intervention referrals
