In less than 3 minutes, you too can change a life by donating to our End of Year fundraising campaign on Crowdrise

Six-year old Jake's medical record includes something that may seem unusual: a copy of his most-improved student award. 

When his dad first came to the Care for the Homeless clinic frustrated and concerned about his son's hyperactive behavior, Jake was failing kindergarten. After his parents lost their jobs, the family fell on hard times and lost their apartment.  

Jake's family has joined a group of more than 60,000 New Yorkers experiencing homeless every night. Unfortunately, his experience is not unique. Families like Jakes' now spend more than 435 days living in NYC homeless shelter before they can find affordable housing. 

Your gift makes life-changing care for Jake and his parents possible. Donate Now. Every $25, 50 or $75 donated to this Crowdrise campaign will be matched by a very generous donor.  

Your investment in health today, will help end homelessness tomorrow. On behalf of 8,000 homeless men, women and children we serve, THANK YOU.
