Care For The Homeless - Bronx Area
Bronx, NY 10458

(Click for details)

Since 1985, Care for the Homeless has met the health care and social service needs of homeless people in New York City. Homeless people have special needs that make it difficult to access services. For example, homeless people are most often displaced from their neighborhood of origin, do not have regular access to a phone, and focus on seeking shelter and food, not health care and social services.

To reduce barriers that homeless people face in accessing care, Care for the Homeless coordinates health care at 23 service sites where homeless people congregate and without regard to their ability to pay. Our service sites include shelters for single adults, family shelters, soup kitchens, drop-in centers, SROs, and a street outreach program to the mentally ill in four of New York City's five boroughs.

In addition to these basic health-related services, our contracted medical providers refer clients, when appropriate, to our social service professionals who address a range of psychosocial needs among homeless people, including mental health and substance use services, and entitlement benefits, including help with Medicaid.

Bronx Area

The Bronx is the northernmost of the five boroughs of New York City. Coextensive with Bronx County, it was the last of the 62 counties of New York State to be incorporated. Located north of Manhattan and Queens, and south of Westchester County, the Bronx is the only borough that is located primarily on the mainland.

People all around the world know the Bronx as the home of the New York Yankees, the Bronx Zoo, and the New York Botanical Garden—not to mention as the birthplace of hip-hop. Look deeper and you’ll discover the quaint maritime village of City Island, the cultural attractions of Fordham and Belmont, aka the “real Little Italy,” centered on the restaurants and cafés of Arthur Avenue. Grand Concourse, in the South Bronx, is full of art deco marvels.  

About one-fifth of the Bronx's area and one-quarter of its land area is given over to park land: about 7,000 acres. Nearer the borough's center, and along the Bronx River, is Bronx Park. Its northern end houses the New York Botanical Gardens, which preserve the last patch of the original hemlock forest that once covered the entire county, and its southern end the Bronx Zoo, the largest urban zoological gardens in the U.S.

Education in the Bronx is provided by a large number of public and private institutions, many of which draw students who live beyond the Bronx. The New York City Department of Education manages public non-charter schools in the borough.

Brooklyn Area

Brooklyn offers attractions for every type of traveler. Want to be on the cutting-edge? Head for Williamsburg, where you can hear live music every night and shop for vintage threads. If you want to root for the home team, there’s pro hockey and basketball at Barclays Center in Downtown Brooklyn. Traveling with kids? Prospect Park and the stroller-filled sidewalks of Park Slope beckon, as does the area’s restaurant scene. And since the best things in life are free, consider a walk across the Brooklyn Bridge or along the scenic Brooklyn Heights promenade. Brooklyn's many exciting neighborhoods, packed with cultural institutions, restaurants, and shops, make the borough a top New York City destination. Downtown Brooklyn provides the perfect starting point for experiencing an eclectic area full of energy and brimming with culture. It's centrally located streets serve as an introduction to the surrounding neighborhoods of Brooklyn Heights, BoCoCa, DUMBO, Fort Greene, Park Slope, Prospect Heights, Williamsburg, and Bushwick—all a short train ride or walk away.

Visitors staying in Brooklyn Heights will be drawn first to its photo op–friendly streets of impeccably restored row houses and a spectacular view of the Lower Manhattan skyline from the newly revitalized Brooklyn Bridge Park. But let yourself wander and you'll find a vibrant neighborhood with thoughtfully curated stores, innovative restaurants, and such energetic cultural institutions as the Brooklyn Historical Society, Bargemusic and the New York Transit Museum. The Heights wears its rich history on its sleeve, with stately architectural styles, august churches and schools and literary landmarks.

Bordered by Brooklyn Heights, Boerum Hill, and Fort Greene, Downtown Brooklyn is truly at the center of it all. The area is a hub for businesses, but it’s also a place to relax and enjoy Brooklyn's arts, culture and entertainment offerings. Classic brownstones dovetail new modern structures and several college campuses bring a lively student population to the area.  For those looking for arts and entertainment, outdoor space MetroTech Commons is the site of exhibits, performances, and special events. Downtown Brooklyn is also home to low-key restaurants, delis and coffee shops where locals drop in for Shake Shack's celebrated burgers, fries, and beverages or a sweet slice of cheesecake from Junior's. From here, the best of Brooklyn is right at your fingertips.

When people think of Brooklyn, typically what comes to mind is Park Slope: leafy streets lined with historic brownstones, intimate eateries with Manhattan-caliber menus and kid-friendly parks and playgrounds. The neighborhood also offers a wide-ranging live-music scene, where you can see everything from emerging indie acts at the cozy Rock Shop to established rockers at The Bell House. Along Fifth Avenue, the neighborhood's main shopping district, you can seek out vintage clothing, affordable fashion from local designers and a range of trendy footwear.

Queens Area

With adventurous art, international cuisine, gorgeous parks and world-class sporting events, Queens features attractions to satisfy nearly every taste. Sports lovers can watch the New York Mets play baseball at Citi Field and, in a venue nearly adjacent, see the US Open host the world’s best tennis players. But in Queens, every day can be an event, whether you’re sampling the delectable Greek cuisine of Astoria or authentic Chinese food in Flushing. View inventive art at MoMA PS1 and Socrates Sculpture Park in Long Island City, and take in the stunning flora at the Queens Botanical Garden.

Astoria has long been known as a Greek neighborhood, and it’s unquestionably a great place to get dishes with calamari, feta, and other Mediterranean staples. But there are communities, and culinary options, from the rest of the world, notably the Middle East, India, and Brazil. Astoria’s proximity to Manhattan—it’s 20 minutes from Times Square by subway—has made it popular with young, artsy New Yorkers, who’ve opened galleries alongside longtime cultural favorites like the Museum of the Moving Image and historic Kaufman Astoria Studios, where several current TV series make their home.

Forest Hills’ gently rolling rows of Tudor houses and tulip trees are secluded and relaxed. The area sometimes feels like a throwback, with old-school pizza parlors, sweets shops, knisheries and a train station that looks unchanged from when Teddy Roosevelt spoke there 100 years ago. Famous for Forest Hills Stadium, the venue the Beatles played in 1964 (reborn as a concert stage in 2013), the neighborhood is partially bordered by Forest Park, which holds a popular golf course, and is renowned as the birthplace of the Ramones and Simon & Garfunkel and as the childhood home of Peter Parker (aka Spider-Man).

Established in the early 20th century by Irish settlers, the planned community of Sunnyside Gardens now sits as a treasured historic district in Sunnyside. The neighborhood retains a heavy Irish influence—especially when it comes to cuisine—and a verdant vibe with courtyards and tree-lined streets. It also boasts residents from around the world—including Romania, Korea, Greece and South America—making a trip to the neighborhood’s shops, restaurants, and pubs an intriguing wander.

Queens hosts various museums and cultural institutions that serve its diverse communities. They range from the historical to the scientific, from conventional art galleries to unique graffiti exhibits. Queens's cultural institutions include, but are not limited to: 5 Pointz, Afrikan Poetry Theatre, Bowne House, Flushing Town Hall, King Manor, Kupferberg Center for the Arts, Noguchi Museum, New York Hall of Science, P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center, Queens Botanical Garden, Queens Museum of Art, SculptureCenter, Thalia Spanish Theater, and the Ganesh Temple, Flushing, Queens.
