Clothing & Showers for the Homeless

The Bowery Mission offers free clothing to the homeless in New York CityAt The Bowery Mission everyone is treated like a king and queen — we want to demonstrate respect and give dignity towards those coming to us for help and show them that they are deeply loved and valued by God. Our Showers & Clothing Program offers hot and refreshing showers, along with free clothing. 

Such immediate and basic needs help our guests regain confidence in a day full of hardship. Whether it's a refreshing shower in the summer or a warming hot shower in the winter, our Clothing & Showers program offer practical help that is often a first step towards restoring dignity to our homeless neighbors.

Volunteers and donors help turn despair into hope

Hundreds of volunteers and donors like you work together with The Bowery Mission to offer more than 46,380 clothing items to homeless men, women and children.

Groups are periodically needed to help organize our clothing donations so they are distributed to those who need it most. Learn more about volunteering.
