Social Experiment: Americans walked past their relatives posing as homeless


The objective of the New York City Rescue Mission (NYCRM), America’s first rescue mission, has remained the same since its founding in 1872: to provide spiritual hope, food, clothing and shelter to people in crisis in New York City. NYCRM overnight guests are offered nutritious meals, housing, spiritual guidance, medical/social service support and clean clothing.

Our long-term residents are offered career development assistance, job placement, financial and job skills training, internet and e-mail access, and GED preparation courses. The men in our Recovery Program receive weekly individual and group counseling, as well as faith based study and discipleship. And for the first time in 142 years the rescue mission now offers an emergency women’s shelter to handle the growing number of women in homeless distress and offer them help and life changing program opportunities. With the continued support from our community we can all work to end homelessness, one life at a time.
