“Serve like you’re serving a King”
That quote is posted at The Bowery Mission flagship building at 227 Bowery where breakfast, lunch and dinner are served to the homeless and hungry every day of the year.
But the meal service is only a small portion of the broader programs the Bowery provides to communities throughout New York City.
One of HFNY’s affiliate organizations since 1994, the Bowery offers holistic services to men, women, and children struggling with crisis in their lives. In the past few years, the Bowery has expanded its programming to effectively double the number of people served.
We have been excited to partner with the Bowery during its expansion over these years, investing significant funding and volunteer time to support their increase in services.
On June 4, the Bowery celebrated the official opening of its new East Harlem location, which provides both a residential recovery program and programming to meet community needs in the neighborhood.
We collaborated with the Bowery to connect two other HFNY affiliates (Open Hands Legal Services and NYC Relief) which could provide the community services needed at the new location. Community members are offered free legal help and social services, and more offerings are being planned for the future.
We look forward to continuing to support this work as The Bowery Mission continues to “serve like serving a King”.
