The New York City Mission Society has been on the frontlines of the war on poverty for more than 200 years. Today, our progressive portfolio of educational, workforce development, cultural enrichment, and community-building programs make a positive, long-term impact on children, youth, and families in the City’s most underserved communities.


New York City Mission Society envisions a city in which every New Yorker thrives in a safe and loving environment, contributes to the overall well-being of the community, and receives the support needed to achieve a joyful and independent life.


New York City Mission Society values kindness, compassion, dignity, respect, and excellence.  We demonstrate these values by delivering services that encourage critical thinking, self-confidence, and resilience in the children, youth, and families we serve.
