Mission Statement

City Relief is a mobile outreach offering people experiencing poverty and homelessness hot meals, supplies, and connections to resources for housing, employment, and health care. These connections change people’s lives. Our Approach: Visiting the same eight locations weekly, we provide a safe place to welcome our guests, share a meal, and discuss solutions to issues they may be facing.


In 1989, City Relief was founded in New York City by Richard + Dixie Galloway. For over 34 years, we've helped transform the lives of those experiencing homelessness & poverty. Today, we foster inclusive communities and create a network of care to assist people as they rebuild their lives.

In 2022 we served 61,187 Guests by providing 47,686 Meals, and 4,320 Personalized Action Plans, alongside our amazing Volunteers who served 9,891 hours with City Relief!

We mobilize over 2,000 volunteers a year - and whether it's your first time or your hundredth time, you have something unique to bring to the table. Volunteers transform lives, and in the process are transformed themselves. Our volunteers are beacons of hope and connection to hurting and isolated people.
