Compassionate Care

Since 1879 The Bowery Mission has met the short-term, emergency needs of New Yorkers caught in the cycles of poverty, hopelessness and dependencies of many kinds with compassionate care services — warm food, safe shelter, clothing and medical care.

Because we know that a simple act of kindness can be the first step toward a transformed life, we try to meet each need of those who come to The Bowery Mission's red doors with practical expressions of God's love — no questions asked, free of charge.
