This year I met a young woman named Alison who used to sleep on the steps of this building. She refused shelter, insisting that she felt safest on these steps. She spent most of her time completely drunk. We told her every day that Jesus loves her, and that He has more for her life than alcoholism and abuse.  We would give her blankets, shoes, and food, and she began to come to our Sunday church services.  Last November, Alison finally enrolled in a Salvation Army drug rehabilitation program, and today she is sober, working, loving Jesus, and learning to serve others in His name.

For over 12 years, the Rescue Alliance has been able to positively impact the lives of our friends on the street and provide them opportunities for change. In February 2020, we saw our most successful outreach in history, but this year, our annual winter outreach changed to Pandemic Don't Walk By.

Once a week, we’ll share brief stories from our affiliates who are still serving communities across the five boroughs. Our affiliates will provide updates on how COVID-19 has changed their programs and services, and how they're remaining hopeful about God continuing to work in our city.
