Mission: Project Renewal''s mission is to renew the lives of homeless men and women in New York City. We focus our efforts on the neediest and least-served of the city''s indigent population - men and women who, in addition to being without a home, cope with mental illness and/or addiction to drugs or alcohol.
Programs: Project Renewal's mission is to empower homeless New Yorkers struggling with mental illness and/or addiction to rebuild their lives with renewed health, homes and jobs.. This comprehensive approach begins on the street where our mobile psychiatric and medical outreach teams - each of which was among the first of its kind - actively reach out to homeless people where they are struggling to survive. Once connected, we can then help people move into a range of residential programs, including ones that help residents achieve sobriety or learn to manage their mental illness. From there, we help people prepare for, find, and keep good jobs: we have created an unprecedented breadth and depth of employment programs and opportunities for men and women with high barriers to employment. The crucial last element in this progression is providing clients with permanent housing, completing their return to self-sufficient life in the community.
