The Xavier Mission of the Church of St. Francis Xavier seeks to welcome, serve and empower those in our New York City community who are in need of human and material support. We provide food, clothing, shelter and life-skills training, guided always by a spirit of love and respect and the goal of building self-sufficiency and self-esteem. Our work reflects the Jesuit principle of advocating social justice, and the parish tradition of fostering a community where the poor and marginalized find a home.
Xavier Mission has long been an advocate of social justice and care for the disadvantaged. The Xavier Mission is the community outreach arm of the Church of St. Francis Xavier in the Chelsea section of New York City. Our roots date back to early Jesuit outreach efforts to mid-19th century immigrants on New York's Lower East Side. Today, we continue our long tradition of service to those in need by offering five ministries:
the Welcome Table soup kitchen
the Hurtado Men's Shelter
two Food Pantries
the All Saints Clothing Room
the Life-Skills Training & Empowerment Program
The Xavier Mission is a 501(c)(3) approved organization under the umbrella of the Church of St. Francis Xavier.
