Don't Walk By is an annual winter outreach to people experiencing homelessness in New York City. Volunteer teams canvass the streets and subway lines of Manhattan looking to meet and our neighbors in need. Outreach teams meet new friends on the street and invite them to dinner at a host site. Here guests are offered a hot meal, and a range of additional items and services such as clothing, basic medical care, overnight hospitality at a partner facility, and the option to enter longer term programs.
Now in its 12th year, Don’t Walk By 2020 will take place across the first four Saturdays of February at four different host site locations. Each Saturday’s outreach will cover a quadrant of Manhattan and mobilizes up to 400 volunteers.
- Feb 1 - Downtown Outreach at Oversea Chinese Mission
- Feb 8 - Eastside Outreach at Central Presbyterian Church
- Feb 15 - Westside Outreach at W83 Ministry Center
- Feb 22 - Uptown Outreach at Harlem Temple Corps
