Monthly Don't Walk By
3rd Thursday of the Month

Every 3rd Thursday of the month, 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 Monthly Don't Walk By and their other outreach programs. 

Contact Hello@RescueAlliance.NYC to learn more or ask questions about how you can engage and serve our homeless neighbors all year round.

Annual Don't Walk By
February

Annual Don’t Walk By is an 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.  

Registration for annual Don't Walk By will open December 1st, 2017. 

If you have questions or would like your church or organization to partner with Don't Walk By, please email hello@rescuealliance.nyc
