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.

The Bowery Mission's 141st Thanksgiving came at one of the most challenging times in our city's history. Our celebration looked quite different, but thanks to friends like you, we safely served over 1,500 nourishing holiday meals on Thanksgiving Day alone!
