This historic mission offers three meals daily, clothing, showers and shelter to those living on the streets of NYC. Men may enter a nine-month residential program to begin permanent change in their lives. Seminars, counseling, computer classes and job training along with Bible study are open to the men in residence. The career center offers help from remedial reading to GED and MS office certificates, skills assessment and career planning. The Bowery Mission's Mont Lawn Camp and City Camp programs, has been reaching out to New York City's needy and vulnerable since 1879. What began as a mission to wayward sailors has grown into five unique ministries that touch the lives of men, women and children. We equip the homeless to rejoin society by meeting physical needs, promoting dependence on Christ and teaching job skills. We help reunite and strengthen families.

The Bowery Mission has been helping the homeless in New York since 1879 by meeting the specific needs of each man, woman and child who walks through our doors. First we help by meeting immediate needs such as food, shelter, clothing and medical care. Then in our residential recovery programs, we address deeper needs for spiritual wholeness, life and job skills training and addiction recovery. Partner with the Bowery Mission today and help the homelessness be overcome!
