Our Mission

HELPING NEARLY 30,000 VULNERABLE NEW YORKERS EACH YEAR TO MOVE OUT OF HOMELESSNESS AND FOOD INSECURITY.

At the Urban Outreach Center, we share a justice-centered welcome and material necessities to those who need it most, in an inclusive environment that places the needs of the most marginalized over all others. Since its founding in 1990, the Urban Outreach Center continues to extend the breadth of social services necessary to support the full worth and dignity of all people. Taken together, we are striving for justice, transforming lives, and providing a space for the neighborhood to thrive.

There are many organizations that extend basic services to deeply impoverished New Yorkers, but the Urban Outreach Center strives in all that we do to be the premier, comprehensive one-stop location for the most vulnerable populations in New York City. Because we maintain such a strong portfolio of services in a trusting and nurturing environment, we are in a position for our staff and guests to truly get to know each other well. This enables us to work closely so that we understand and serve our clients most pressing needs, and also to anticipate potential problems and formulate hopeful solutions in advance of a crisis. This approach sets the Urban Outreach Center apart and allows us to evaluate on both qualitative and quantitative levels our guests experience.

The Urban Outreach Center is a premier, independent social services center, located at Jan Hus Presbyterian Church and Neighborhood House (351 E 74th ST in Manhattan). We are inclusive and progressive. All are welcome here.
