By the Numbers
Since the 1870s, The Bowery Mission has served New Yorkers experiencing homelessness and hunger. Each year, The Bowery Mission provides more than 558,726 hot meals, 140,658 nights of shelter, 100,334 articles of clothing and 2,423 onsite medical, dental and optometry exams.
Each meal and every service is an invitation to residential and community programs that help clients make progress. Each year, the Mission serves 368 adults in its residential recovery programs and 368 more at the Community Hope Resource Center.
To empower children to thrive and succeed, The Bowery Mission also offers year‐round opportunities for enrichment through City Camp, culminating in summer camp for 726 children in the Poconos Region of Pennsylvania.
The Bowery Mission expanded its front‐line services to new neighborhoods by uniting first in 2016 with Goodwill Rescue Mission and then in 2017 with New York City Rescue Mission.
Our work is privately funded by the generous donations and in-kind gifts of caring individuals, and supported by the efforts of thousands of volunteers.
