About:
The Bowery Mission Men's Center at Avenue D currently offers transitional housing for formerly homeless men who graduate from The Bowery Mission's residential recovery program. In the near future, the Men's Center will also offer long-term residential recovery programming for men, which will include comprehensive services such as life skills training, vocational training, mentoring, counseling, recovery services, recreation, pastoral care, and housing support upon exit.
Mission
The Bowery Mission ministers in New York City to men, women, and children caught in the cycles of poverty, hopelessness and dependencies of many kinds, and sees their lives transformed to hope, joy, lasting productivity and eternal life through the power of Jesus Christ.

Our Partnership

Mobilizing Volunteers
Volunteers build relationships with program participants by leading a monthly Bible study and activity night.
Creativity From Our Volunteers
A professional landscape architect volunteer helped design an outdoor garden space so residents could enjoy a more beautiful outdoor community space.
Training And Consulting
We help cover costs for Bowery Transitional staff to attend leadership development and management trainings.

At first, I thought I wouldn’t have much in common with the men, but soon realized that I really enjoyed hanging out with them. We laugh and have fun. It’s felt very natural being there, enjoying our studies, game nights and recreational activities. It’s become a place where I feel like I could not only make a difference but where I now also fit in.
