Children & Youth
Communities in Need
Our volunteers serve breakfast to 700+ guests, tutor kids and serve dinner at KidZone, and teach GED classes to adults.
Making Grants To Fund Programs
Our funding supports the Hunger Prevention Program. Guests of the Father's Heart are served a hot all-you-can-eat breakfast on Saturday mornings, and can take home a pantry bag of food items for the week.
Training And Consulting
In 2014, Father's Heart participated in workshops on program effectiveness. After visiting other HFNY affiliates, they initiated a new check-in process that allows to track more information about their guests.

The Father's Heart literally is a light in the darkness, its neon sign symbolizing how God is at work in programs like KidZone. During my time there, I have seen His love touch the hearts of volunteers, comfort families, and fill children with laughter. All too often, I walk around with blinders, focused on my superficial problems, but KidZone pushes me to look beyond myself and find joy in helping others. It is a privilege to serve with the Father's Heart community, and I am very thankful to be a part of it.

Lent has traditionally been a liturgical season of ‘alms-giving’, where we let go of our own desires and focus on the needs of others, especially the poor and needy.
Volunteering and engaging volunteers as part of my full-time work at The Bowery Mission stems from my own turbulent experiences in New York City.
