New York City Rescue Mission's goal is to provide help and hope to the hungry, homeless and hurting men and women of New York City. The nation's oldest rescue mission, New York City Rescue Mission has provided basic needs assistance to New Yorkers suffering from homelessness and hunger since 1872. Every year we build on this legacy, driven by our desire to deliver the most effective care. In 2017, we joined forces with The Bowery Mission, offering programs and services in nine locations, with the goal of preventing homelessness and partnering with individuals to become independent, self-sustaining citizens. We aim to build trust by establishing name-knowing relationships with our guests, inviting them to choose help and transform their lives. In 2017, we provided 181,659 meals and 70,500 nights of shelter to our guests.
