Choose Help

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.

Compassionate Care

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.

Thanksgiving at The Bowery Mission

Guests smiling

Thanksgiving is such a critical time for The Bowery Mission. In a city where New Yorkers experiencing homelessness can often feel invisible or even threatened, we offer a safe and welcoming “home” — a “family table” to be seen and heard. At our annual celebration, we’re excited to gather together in community, with a delicious Thanksgiving feast served with love.
