Bowery Mission Medical Clinic

Healthcare & Social Services

Bowery Mission Medical Clinic was started by a HFNY volunteer and utilizes social workers, nurse practitioners, and medical professionals to provide medical services to the homeless and uninsured at The Bowery Mission.  

The Bowery Mission Medical Clinic utilizes a variety of medical and social work professionals and see a variety of needs, from diabetes to hypertension, dermatologic conditions to asthma. 

The goal is to provide the highest quality of care in a barrier-free setting to those who often have no other way to access medical care.

Our volunteers, who are healthcare professionals, provide free medical services to the homeless and uninsured at The Bowery Mission.
Our grant covers all of the clinic's direct program costs, which includes funding all medical equipment and supplies.
After seeing the deep need for health assistance among the Bowery population, our volunteers worked with The Bowery Mission to create The Bowery Medical Clinic and continue to provide the volunteer power to ensure this program succeeds.

The Bowery Mission Medical Clinic relies on volunteers to provide critical services to their guests on Wednesdays from 6:00 to 8:00PM and always welcomes doctors, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, optometrists and social workers to serve. Doctors and nurses must provide their own malpractice coverage. Monthly commitment required to maintain consistency for the guests who depend on the program.

Podiatrists and dermatologists are especially needed to serve with the clinic. 

All volunteers must be at least 18 years old.

“I am inspired each night I work at the medical clinic. I am inspired by the struggles of those who by misfortune or by poor life choices find themselves downtrodden yet have not given up hope. We take for granted medicines like Tylenol or Advil but to the patients of our clinic, they are grateful for such medicines, cough drops and even bandaids. For many patients, we are the only medical resource available to them.”
Dr. Peter, Volunteer
