We hope you’ll join us on Tuesday, February 14th to celebrate The Bowery Mission’s life-changing work with an evening of dinner, dancing and connecting with fellow supporters.

The Bowery Mission exists to promote the flourishing of New Yorkers overcoming homelessness and marginalization. Since the 1870s, we have been a place of welcome, care and healing. With an emphasis on holistic care that nourishes bodies, minds, hearts and souls, we partner with guests and clients as they rediscover the fullest expression of who God intended them to be.

The Impact

The Annual Valentine Gala raises funds for The Bowery Mission’s essential programs, which have served New Yorkers experiencing homelessness and hunger every day since the 1870s. Each meal and night of shelter serves as an invitation to further life-transforming care experienced within a loving community of support. Even during these uncertain times, our guests and clients continue to grow in confidence and self-esteem, reconnect with family, deepen personal relationships and secure vocational and housing needs. The Bowery Mission also offers year-round opportunities for enrichment through Mont Lawn City Camp, culminating in summer camp for hundreds of children in the Poconos Region of Pennsylvania.
