The Bowery Mission Women's Centers

Since 1879, The Bowery Mission has worked to help those whose lives are caught in cycles of poverty, hopelessness and dependencies of many kinds, and see their lives transformed to hope, joy, lasting productivity and spiritual wholeness.

Women who enter The Bowery Mission Women's Centers come from diverse backgrounds. Each has suffered homelessness due to abuse, domestic violence, cycles of addiction, financial exploitation, job loss, health crises or poverty.

At the Women's Centers in Harlem and the Upper East Side, staff and volunteers offer residents practical solutions through life and employment skills training, continuing education opportunities, single and group counseling, legal aid, job-readiness training and housing placement.
