Programs
 

              

Episcopal Charities currently supports 99 community outreach programs in partnership with Episcopal congregations throughout the Diocese of New York. Our programs are diverse and open to all. Our community kitchen and food pantries work to address hunger in local towns and neighborhoods. Skill-building programs help brighten the futures of the unemployed, recent immigrants and ex-prisoners reentering society. Health and wellness programs help to improve the quality of life for senior citizens, children on the autism spectrum, persons with AIDS and recovering substance abusers. Children's arts, academic enrichment and summer recreation offerings broaden the horizons of thousands of young people annually. Programs are available to all persons in need, regardless of faith or church affiliation. Programs focus in one of three areas:

  • Basic Human Needs
  • Youth Opportunity Grants
  • All Our Children
  • In addition to funding programs, Episcopal Charities provides training to staff in each program and technical assistance to improve quality. We also work with community leaders to introduce the arts to children.
