Emily Found Hope When She Needed It Most — Thanks to You!

"If it wasn't for The Bowery Mission when I was homeless as a child, I don't know where I'd be today."

Every night in New York City, tens of thousands of men, women and children are left with nowhere to call home.

Thanks to generous and compassionate friends like YOU, however, many of our homeless neighbors are finding the practical care and new hope they need at The Bowery Mission to overcome their circumstances and thrive.

Some years back, Emily was one of those children. When she was 9 years old, her mother was seriously ill and out of work. Soon, Emily and her mother and brother became homeless. Fortunately, someone told Emily and her family about The Bowery Misson. Here they found the real help they needed to get back on their feet.

Today, Emily is a student here in New York City. She has her own apartment and a 7-year-old son of her own. Two years ago, Emily was so grateful for her childhood experience at The Bowery Mission, she decided to give back and begin volunteering here. After all these years, Emily says, “The Bowery Mission still feels like home.”

That’s the remarkable difference caring people like you make in the lives of homeless men, women and children every day at The Bowery Mission. Thank you for your ongoing support.
