The Bowery Mission

Ministry Description
The Bowery Mission has served New Yorkers experiencing homelessness and hunger since the 1870s. At its downtown campuses, the Mission is committed to showing radical hospitality to anyone in immediate need of food, shelter, or clothing. At its uptown campuses, the Mission's Residential Programs provide a safe environment to heal from past trauma, renew faith, overcome barriers to independence, and achieve personal goals for life and work. The Mission's Children's Programs, Mont Lawn Camp and City Camp, provide year-round mentoring and enrichment opportunities for youth in East Harlem and the South Bronx. The Bowery Mission exists to promote the flourishing of New Yorkers overcoming homelessness and marginalization by providing compassionate services and transformative community. Last year, the Mission served 320,000 meals, 66,000 nights of shelter, and 32,000 articles of clothing. Additionally, the Mission served 214 adults in its Residential Programs and 203 children and youth through its year-round programs.
