New York City Relief is BOOTS ON THE GROUND in the poverty stricken area of New York City and New Jersey. We lead an army of volunteers, 7,000 strong. We take poverty, addiction and despair head on. We go to the front lines of critical need, bringing relief and compassion to those falling through the cracks of society. The help we bring is many times the difference between life and death for these most vulnerable people groups. We don't just give a hand out, we also give a hand up by connecting the suffering to vital resources that can turn their lives around. Shelter, medical care, addiction recovery and job training are lifelines to many who are sinking. Our strategy is compassion and our mission is life transformation.
