The Bowery Mission (legal name Christian Herald Association) traces its roots back to 1879. The Bowery Mission's goal is to be the most effective provider of compassionate care and life transformation services for hurting people in New York City. We are called to minister in New York City to men, women, and children caught in cycles of poverty, hopelessness, and dependencies of many kinds, and to see their lives transformed to hope, joy, lasting productivity and spiritual wholeness. in 2015, The Bowery Mission's combined programs provided homeless men and women with more than 406,000 meals, 91,500 nights of shelter and 44,100 articles of clothing, as well as over 600 free medical and optometry appointments and nearly 300 crisis intervention referrals. We served 285 adults in our residential recovery programs and provided over 1,100 at risk children and youth with summer camp experiences and year-round mentoring and enrichment opportunities.
