Thanks to all of the volunteers who made Don't Walk By 2017 a huge success! 

Don’t Walk By is an annual outreach campaign where Rescue Alliance Members & Partners encourage our fellow New Yorkers to put in practice the parable of the Good Samaritan and choose not to pass by our neighbors surviving on the street. Over 1,000 volunteers will blanket the streets of Manhattan, meeting individuals and inviting them back to an anchor church where they are offered a hot meal, clothing, basic medical care, and an opportunity for an alternative life. 




Weekly Don't Walk By

Join us every Thursday for evening outreach!

Each Thursday night, Rescue Alliance and our member New York City Relief mobilize volunteers for Weekly Don't Walk By. Volunteers meet at St. Francis Education Center (139 W. 31st St.) and engage men and women experiencing homelessness on the street. Outreach runs from 5:45-9:30pm.  

Visit NewYorkCityRelief.Org to sign up for Weekly Don't Walk By and their other outreach programs.
