Children's Arts

2009 - Christ Bronxville - Young At Arts

The joy of creation, the power of expression, the discipline of performance… Young people that participate in our Children’s Arts programs gain invaluable experience and insights. As funding for in-school arts programs has been trimmed or eliminated, our arts programs are especially valuable for a child’s development.

Health and Wellness

IMG_2638-1080x675.jpg

Episcopal Charities’ Health and Wellness programs take many forms.  From programs that offer companionship for the elderly to those that address addiction issues or provide for children with special needs, all of our programs provide essential services offered with a spirit of love and fellowship. Parish-based outreach programs have identified very specialized needs within their community and are addressing them with the help of active and committed volunteers.

Community Kitchens

2007 - St Margarets Bronx - Feeding - CR

In contrast to optimistic news reports about the decreasing unemployment and the strength of the economy, parishes report significant – even rising - levels of need in their communities. Given the prevalence of low-wage and contract jobs, many working families in urban, suburban, and rural communities alike cannot afford the basic necessities such as housing, childcare, healthcare, and transportation, and the United Way reports 45% of all New York households are unable make ends meet (ALICE Report, NY). Requests for emergency food assistance continue to grow, as one in ten households in New York State also struggle with food insecurity (Hunger Solutions NY).

Skills Building

2012 - Christs Rye - Hudson Link (4).jpg

Working to build brighter futures for our fellow New Yorkers is at the heart of our mission. Our Skills Building programs aim to provide the light at the end of the tunnel. Included in this category are post-prison reentry programs, literacy assistance, youth leadership development and programs for recent immigrants.  Every program works to meet its participants “where they are,” recognizing that every person served is actively seeking a better life… and is willing to work to achieve it.
