Volunteer Opportunities

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.

This year's Spring Benefit was the first one we've held in person since 2019! We loved celebrating community with everyone together in one room.

God, so many of us are hurting. Our city and our neighborhoods need you. We pray, Lord, for the over 60,000 New Yorkers who are without homes. We lament the fact that we have been slow to love our neighbor as you call us to.

Together with Rescue Alliance, we host Don’t Walk By every year in February, the coldest winter month. In 2022, we will still continue our annual winter outreach, but with three significant changes.
