Compassionate Care invites guests to Choose Help. Through hospitality, food, safe shelter, clothing, showers and medical care, we meet the immediate needs of each person who walks through our Red Doors.
The Bowery Mission’s Compassionate Care program serves those experiencing homelessness by providing basic needs and emergency care services in welcoming, trauma-informed environments. Meals, shelter, clothing and more are provided seven days a week, 365 days a year, to all who walk through our doors — no questions asked.
At the Bowery Mission, Compassionate Care is viewed as an opportunity to build trusting relationships and invite guests to “choose help” through longer-term services and supports. Guests who are ready to move beyond Compassionate Care have the opportunity to begin individualized care planning in partnership with onsite case managers.
Thanks to you, The Bowery Mission has been keeping its doors open to safely serve New Yorkers in crisis. Last year we provided:
life-sustaining meals to men, women, and children in need
nights of safe shelter to neighbors experiencing homelessness
articles of clothing
Thanksgiving at The Bowery Mission
The Bowery Mission hosted its cherished, time-honored tradition: the longest-running Thanksgiving meal celebration in New York City! We believe in the power of community, which is why we extended a heartfelt invitation to anyone without a home to join us around our family table on Thanksgiving Day.
