WHY: The Bowery Mission has served homeless and hungry New Yorkers since 1879. Last year, The Bowery Mission provided more than 505,000 meals to men, women and children, 97,300 nights of shelter and 56,200 articles of clothing, as well as showers, haircuts, and expert medical and optometric care. Each meal and every night of shelter is an invitation to residential recovery programs, where men and women get a second chance and lives are transformed from hopelessness to hope. The Bowery Mission’s residential programs served nearly 300 men and women who are regaining sobriety, reconnecting with family and faith, pursuing educational goals, and preparing for work and independent living. To ensure that at-risk children have a positive first chance at life, The Bowery Mission’s City Camp and Summer Camp served nearly 1,200 at-risk children from poor city communities. The Bowery Mission expanded its front-line services to new neighborhoods by opening its Community Hope Resource Center in East Harlem and by uniting with Goodwill Rescue Mission in Newark, New Jersey. Generous donors and more than 11,000 volunteers help The Bowery Mission provide hope. www.bowery.org
