Mission Minded — Easter 2018
A word from David P. Jones, President & CEO
Hope starts with a meal this Easter
Every day, men, women and children walk through the Red Doors of The Bowery Mission filled with hunger. They are physically hungry, of course, but they are also hungry for hope. Days and nights on the streets leave their stomachs and their souls longing for something more.
When guests visit The Bowery Mission this Easter season, we are prepared to offer a generous helping of both food and kindness. Thanks to friends like you, we meet the physical needs of our hungry and homeless neighbors. Once these needs are addressed, we start nourishing their souls.
Coming through the doors of The Bowery Mission for a meal is the first step. But it’s an important one, as it gets people in need moving in a positive direction.
As guests join life-transforming programs, they’re able to take the second, third and fourth steps toward a new life.
We offer educational assessments, career guidance, spiritual counseling and life skills training to bring practical hope, too.
Here, you can read about Frank, The Bowery Mission’s oldest living graduate. Frank speaks of the hope he found in his first meal at The Bowery Mission, and how that hope is still transforming his life today.
This Easter season, each of our guests will be given an opportunity to experience the joy and restoration of new life. Thank you for the role you play in guiding them toward this life-giving hope.
— Dave, President & CEO
