Episcopal Charities provides critical funding, operational support, and volunteers to strengthen nearly 100 local programs working to transform the lives of more than 1 million people in need each year.
Working in partnership with these programs, we help connect those in need with the generosity of caring donors and the energy of dedicated volunteers.
We fight hunger through food pantries and community kitchens;
We strengthen communities through skills-building programs that offer a path to success for the unemployed, recent immigrants, and the formerly incarcerated re-entering society;
We protect the most vulnerable through health and wellness programs that improve quality of life for senior citizens, the homebound, children with special needs, and recovering substance abusers;
We create opportunities for the next generation through children’s arts, academic enrichment, and summer recreation programs.
In the true spirit of outreach, every program we support is free of religious content, welcoming one and all. We serve communities throughout the ten-county Episcopal Diocese of New York: Manhattan, Staten Island, the Bronx, Westchester, Rockland, Putnam, Dutchess, Sullivan, Orange and Ulster.
