Our staff were delighted to receive continued support from LIC Relief. The grassroots organization, founded by Pastor Patrick Thompson and Kelly Craig, is doing phenomenal work throughout the community. They provided staff with lunches all week.

As if feeding our staff for three weeks wasn’t enough, Kelly Craig from LIC Relief kindly donated these masks.

We enjoyed some Michele Et Augustin treats courtesy of Ronald McDonald House. This was quite the morale booster for our staff!


Our friends at Modern Spaces and Skyline Tower donated activity books and crayons, which were graciously and gratefully accepted by our Health Education team.

LIC Masks is a group of wonderful human beings from our surrounding community in Long Island City. They make masks, collect manufactured masks, and distribute them to those in need, including their neighbors at The Floating Hospital.

These items are needed now

Since 1866, The Floating Hospital has been the largest provider of healthcare and education to families living with homelessness. Based in Long Island City, it provides comprehensive primary, dental and behavioral-health services, and health-education to patients living in more than 300 shelters and domestic violence safe houses throughout New York City.

The Floating Hospital will move into a new modern main clinic in Long Island City in 2021 and continue to support patients in satellite clinics at family homeless shelters and public housing complexes in Queens, Brooklyn and the Bronx.
