For Church Groups

Church missions team helps with The Bowery Mission's outreach program

Please note: Thanksgiving week volunteer registration will open online on November 1 at 7am EST. Please check back on that date to sign up. Slots are typically fully booked within a few hours!

The Bowery Mission offers a number of volunteer opportunities for church groups to serve the homeless and hurting of New York City. By volunteering at The Bowery Mission, your church group will be fulfilling the words of Jesus in Matthew 25:40: "Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me." Your church group members will see lives transformed and, in the process, see change in their own lives.

Some of the opportunities like the Outreach ProgramShort-term Missions and The Bowery Mission Chapel Team, are exclusively for churches. Other opportunities, such as Meal Services and Special Skills and Projects are also available for church groups. The Don't Walk By campaign in February is also an opportunity to put your faith into action.
