New York City Rescue Mission exists to provide help and hope to the hungry, homeless and hurting men and women of New York City. Meals, shelter, clothing, and more are provided seven days a week, 365 days a year. At NYC Rescue Mission, Compassionate Care is viewed as an opportunity to build trusting relationships and invite guests to choose help through long-term services and support.

In order to effectively combat the epidemic of homelessness affecting nearly 70,000 people in New York City and to meet the needs of our neighbors across the New York metro area, New York City Rescue Mission and Goodwill Rescue Mission (Newark) joined forces with The Bowery Mission. Leveraging more than 400 years of combined service, three historic organizations have become one to reimagine the fight against poverty and homelessness. Each year, in collaboration with The Bowery Mission and Goodwill Rescue Mission, we provide 558,000 meals, 140,000 nights of safe shelter and 100,000 articles of clothing.
