The Bowery Mission Transitional Center


The Transitional Center is a highly successful residential program for men.The Bowery Mission Transitional Center is the result of a groundbreaking partnership between New York City’s Department of Homeless Services and The Bowery Mission.  Our highly successful 6-to-9 month program is designed to transition formerly homeless drug-addicted men into independent living.  Residents participate in counseling, addiction recovery, career education and training at our on-site career center, and work experience both in-house and then off-site.  77 men can participate in the program at one time, living in single-room occupancy units.

Since it opened its doors in January of 1994, The Bowery Mission Transitional Center has helped more than 1,500 men move out of the New York City shelter system.  Each year, The Bowery Mission Transitional Center is been ranked by the Department of Homeless Services among the most effective substance abuse centers in the City.
