Healthcare for All

As affordable housing continues to vanish in New York City, the number of homeless families in shelters continues to break records. These families need our charity care more than ever before.

Our work is made possible every day by supporters like you who value the basic right for all families to receive the best care possible.

We must rely on friends like you. Be a part of our response — together, we can reach 100% of our goal: healthcare for all.

The Floating Hospital is NYC’s largest healthcare provider to victims of domestic violence and families living in homeless shelters.

Annual Statistics

One of New York City’s oldest healthcare charities, The Floating Hospital is as relevant today as at the time of our birth. Since 1866, we have honored our mission — that everyone deserves access to healthcare, regardless of their ability to pay.

Today, New York City’s 15,500 families living in homeless shelters and domestic violence safe houses need access to healthcare as a result of being displaced from their homes. With your help, The Floating Hospital can provide them with the accessible healthcare they need to continue working, stay in school and live healthy lives. Your gift can help us do more good.
