We mobilize people to serve organizations on the ground, and we train and equip leaders to volunteer at every level of our partner organizations.




Our grants help non-profit programs meet practical needs and provide seed funding to start-up non-profits.

Join the largest homelessness outreach of the whole year, the 12th annual #DontWalkBy! We are looking for compassionate people who will help us canvass every street in Manhattan in the first four weeks in February. You’ll either be part of our street team which will invite people back to our host location for a hot meal, clothing, medical care and other services. Or, you can join our hospitality team to make sure each person feels welcome and gets an opportunity to get connected with further services to improve their lives.
As a founding member of the @rescuealliance, @NYC_Relief’s role is training the outreach volunteers, coordinating the hospitality experience for our guests, providing on-site assessments and referrals through one-on-one life assessments, as well as following up with anyone who needs assistance connecting to ongoing services or compassionate care teams. We are proud to connect the guests we meet to incredible organizations like @bowerymission @hfny & @salvationarmyny to help create a city where everyone belongs!

In 2016, HFNY co-sponsored a “Grace, Justice, and Mercy” event with public interest lawyer Bryan Stevenson, the real-life inspiration for the movie and the author of “Just Mercy” (a NYT bestseller). Read what we learned and watch videos of the event here: hfny.org/justmercy ⚖️
