Mission & Values

Project Renewal is a non-profit organization with the mission of ending homelessness by empowering men and women struggling with addiction, mental illness, or both to rebuild their lives with renewed health, homes, and jobs.

Renewing lives, and reclaiming hope.


The Need

80% of chronically homeless men and women struggle with mental illness and/or addiction, and fragmented treatment exacerbates their harsh reality: a revolving door of emergency rooms, jails, shelters, and the streets.


The Solution

Our innovative programs are designed to end the revolving door and our results prove they work.

For over 45 years, our pioneering approach has created unmatched and comprehensive solutions in housing, healthcare, addiction and mental health treatment, job training and placement, replicated around the nation and helping over 13,000 homeless New Yorkers last year alone.
