The Bowery Mission Women's Centers, located on the Upper East Side and Central Harlem, offer women in crisis a safe environment, caring community, and connection to Christ. This long-term residential recovery program helps women make progress toward life transformation through community life, counseling, addiction recovery, family restoration, like skills classes, and vocational training.
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.

Mobilizing Volunteers
Volunteers are vital to the ongoing programming at the Women's Centers. Volunteers cook and serve meals, mentor in the Career Center, lead recreational group outings, teach sewing, knitting, and art classes, and lead special events.
Creativity From Our Volunteers
Our volunteers infuse additional love, warmth, and joy in the lives of the women at the Bowery. They also creatively work with staff to find new ways to build relationships with the women during their time of life transformation.
Making Grants To Fund Programs
Our funding covers costs for nutritious meals, career center materials and supplies, activities and outings including museum visits and cultural events, and supplies for sewing and knitting classes.

Through my time with these women, it has given me great joy to witness the effect that God’s grace has in a life that has been given a second chance. I love seeing hope awaken month by month in women who have hit bottom and are now trusting God with their lives. I love hearing their stories of how God has taught them beautiful things about who He is, and how deeply He loves them.
