Description & History

Project Renewal is the only organization in New York that provides everything homeless people need to move from the streets to independent living. This comprehensive approach begins on the street where our mobile psychiatric and medical outreach teams actively reach out to homeless people where they are struggling to survive. Once connected, we can then help people move into a range of model residential programs, including ones that help residents achieve sobriety or learn to manage their mental illness. From there, we help people prepare for, find, and keep good jobs: we have created an unprecedented breadth and depth of employment programs and opportunities for men and women once considered unemployable. The crucial last element in this progression is providing clients with permanent housing, completing their return to self-sufficient life within the community.
