Help keep families afloat. Join the Tugboat Society

Join our society of monthly donors: caring people who make our mission real and families whole again. One-quarter of all families living in NYC’s homeless shelters and domestic violence safe houses receive their care from us. Together, we can help them get back home.

Camp Rise Up, summer 2020, needs you!

"This is my family." We heard that from more than one of our young campers. After the last campfire ember faded, after the last backpack was loaded on to the bus back to the city, what remained was everything: the laughing, the lessons, the love of nature and newfound friendships. Rise up and give a homeless child an unforgettable summer.

Your gift is an act of love

Your gift is one of the last buffers against a system that is failing families. Institutional care programs are constantly challenged by political forces that restrict and cut funding. Medicaid doesn't fully cover The Floating Hospital's costs to provide medical, behavioral, or dental healthcare to our patients. And it doesn't cover all of the vital services we provide like health education and free-to-patient transportation services. Your gift will make a real difference to a family.
