As Mission founder Jerry McAuley once said, “We clean men up on the outside and God cleans them on the inside.” Often in the cycle of eating, showering, participating in chapel services and sleeping at the Mission, people get “reconnected to God.”
Most guests come to NYCRM seeking a hot meal, a clean shower and a safe bed. Providing a nutritious meal to someone that is hungry and hurting often opens the door to discussing deeper needs. It can be the first step in a person’s recovery. We serve breakfast and dinner to men, women and children every day.
NYCRM can accommodate 100 men in beds each night. There are 29 beds on the second floor, reserved for men participating in the Residential Recovery Program. When weather is below freezing or inclement, we lay out an additional 50 mats on our chapel floor.
Bed sheets are washed for guests every day. All male Mission guests have access to showers, and all overnight guests are required to shower before going to bed each evening. We care for the cleanliness and well-being of the entire person.
