New York City Relief (NYCR) is a mobile outreach to the poor and homeless that empowers volunteers to consistently and compassionately connect people in need with resources that lead to life transformation.
Volunteers arrive at the Relief Bus and serve soup, bread and drinks, clean the outreach area, give out care kits that contain hygiene products and new socks, offer prayer and encouragement and build relationships with guests.
*While street ministry is extremely rewarding, there are many challenges that require a level of maturity and responsibility. Our friends on the street are struggling with various issues (including addiction, mental illness, etc.) that may lead them to be agitated, unfriendly, use vulgar language, etc. It is at the discretion of the child’s parent/guardian if they feel their child should serve.
All children under the age of 18 must print and fill out our Volunteer Application and have their parent/guardian sign the form. Any child under the age of 16 must serve with an adult (1 adult per child).
