Mission Statement

Xavier Mission is an independent non-profit addressing hunger, homelessness, and poverty in New York City. Xavier Mission strives for a future where all people, regardless of economic status, are treated with dignity and respect, and are given the opportunity to realize their goals. We welcome those who are economically disadvantaged into a supportive community, and we serve our guests with dignity, empower them to achieve self-sufficiency, and advocate for social justice.


Founded by the Church of St. Francis Xavier in 1983, Xavier Mission became an independent nonprofit in 2012.

Today, Xavier Mission operates five community outreach programs in and around the Chelsea neighborhood of New York City and beyond, which provide a continuum of services to New Yorkers facing difficult times:

  • Welcome Table soup kitchen, serving 1,000 meals to unhoused individuals every Sunday, when most soup kitchens are closed
  • Food Pantry, providing groceries for 400 low-income households in a dignified, shopping-style environment
  • Clothing Room, including toiletries and other essentials for unhoused individuals and low-income families, including recently arrived refugees
  • Financial Assistance / Eviction Prevention Program (FAP)
  • Life Skills Empowerment Programs (LSEP)
  • Plus seasonal food and clothing projects throughout the year, including Thanksgiving meals and more
A "small but mighty" organization with only 4 full-time staff members, we rely heavily on volunteers to deliver our services.
