Homelessness among families in New York City has hit epidemic proportions, a humanitarian crisis fueled by domestic violence and a lack of affordable housing. At The Floating Hospital, we do whatever it takes to bring healthcare, relief and comfort to children and families without a home.
Parents living in family homeless shelters, domestic violence safe houses, doubled up with families and friends or living on the streets lack basic securities—food, clothing, shelter—that others take for granted. Such conditions have profound effects on their health and their futures.
HEALTHCARE ALONE IS NOT ENOUGH. We’ve spent the past 155+ years assisting the neediest New Yorkers with their everyday and chronic medical, dental and mental health concerns. In this crisis, however, healthcare alone is not enough. We do more because we have to do more:
We break down barriers to care by providing families with free roundtrip transportation to their healthcare appointments.
We help families navigate the complexities brought on by homelessness, including free health education for all ages, in school and at our clinic.
We give families urgently needed food, clothing and supplies such as diapers and hygiene products. We supply kids with toys, books, and backpacks stocked for school. Many families we see have little more than what they can carry in a suitcase or shopping bag.
We help families navigate the housing and healthcare systems and other bureaucracies, ensuring they meet the protocols to receive benefits, education and housing.
We make positive changes to their life trajectory through Camp Rise Up, our summer camp experience.
