The 2020 Summer Soirée has been postponed.

In an effort to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, and to prioritize the health of our community, we are postponing our summer fundraiser to May 2021.

While we are sad to miss you this summer, as a healthcare provider, we value your health and safety above all. Please consider a donation at this time–we need your support more than ever to help the most vulnerable among us.

For more details about our rescheduled event, contact Ann-Louise Lipman at

Come together for an important cause and help continue our legacy

Political climates change. Institutional care programs are constantly changed by political forces that restrict and cut funding. In good times and bad, the need for charity has not diminished. And The Floating Hospital will always be there. Thanks to you.
Your support buys more than you can imagine: In 2020, The Floating Hospital will serve 23% of New York City’s homeless children and 35% of homeless adults with safe, family care. Our impact is significant: nearly 30% of New York City’s homeless families receive accessible healthcare.


Some Facts

Reserve your sponsorship and journal ads to
help a family right now

By sponsoring The Floating Hospital’s Summer Soirée, you light a path out of homelessness for families left without resources, recourse or agency to help themselves. As New York City shutters services and  jobs vanish in the wake of  the COVID-19 precautions, The Floating Hospital remains open for all who need us.
Your contribution helps us keep families afloat. We will remain in place as a healthcare safety net, and continue our practice of charity care, which includes distributing basic necessities like free meals, clothing, diapers, personal healthcare products, fully-stocked school backpacks, health education, case management, and free, safe transportation to and from healthcare appointments.

For more information on tickets, sponsorships, or program ads, please contact:
