Home/Donations & Fundraising, Good Health Shuttle/Good Health Shuttle Appeal Update

To date, you have raised $35,000 for The Floating Hospital’s Good Health Shuttle!

Over the past year, during a time of tremendous upheaval and uncertainty, The Floating Hospital continued to provide needy New York City families with a safety net of comprehensive and compassionate healthcare and other essential support. Through good times and bad, we remain wholly committed to helping all New Yorkers live healthy, sustainable lives, and building a culture of good health for future generations.

In recent weeks, we launched a campaign for the Good Health Shuttle, one of the vital services we offer to families living with homelessness. This service is a lifeline for many, especially during a public-health crisis. Traveling from remote shelters to clinics, especially with young children, is a challenge on any day. But during a pandemic it is even more difficult and unsafe. Our fleet of vehicles removes that stress, the uncertainty and cost of transportation during these tough times.

Staying true to The Floating Hospital’s 150+ year old commitment to provide “more than healthcare,” our shuttle vans and minibuses also deliver necessities such as medical prescriptions, food, clothing and diapers to ensure that families have what they need, no matter where they are living.

Our thanks to the many supporters who have generously donated to this campaign. If you haven’t yet had the chance to contribute to the Good Health Shuttle, there’s still time! Please make your donation today.

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.

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