About:
New York City Relief is a mobile outreach to the homeless. They connect people to resources that lead to life transformation. Their team of staff and volunteers believe that everyone deserves a place to call home because homelessness is a struggle, not a life sentence. Mobility is key to their strategy and as they operate outreaches in NYC and NJ, it allows them to go where the need is greatest. Their consistency encourages relationships and builds community.

Our Partnership

Mobilizing Volunteers
Volunteers deepen their heart for and understanding of how to compassion to the poor and love the poor as Jesus does. Volunteers help to serve meals but also to provide long-term resources to those needing assistance.
Making Grants To Fund Programs
Our funding helps to cover the NYC-based sites to cover the meal costs as well as the tolls, insurance, gas, and other costs related to the mobile bus soup kitchen unit.
Training And Consulting
We have invested in NYC Relief's board development, as well as developing key messaging for their organization as it grows, such as a case statement.
