Since 1879, the Bowery Mission has served homeless, hungry, and poor New Yorkers. Best known for a compassionate care program that serves almost four hundred thousand meals per year and provides clothing, shelter, showers, and medical care to those in need, the Bowery Mission has long offered New York City’s homeless the opportunity to transform their lives through residential recovery programs. The purpose of these programs is to empower men and women in crisis to permanently overcome poverty, addiction, trauma, and unemployment.
