There are many who describe the record number of people sleeping in NYC and NJ shelters, in parks, in train stations, and bus terminals, as a problem that needs to be solved. The Relief bus doesn’t exist to solve problems, but to love people.

We converted two school buses into mobile outreach centers that go directly to those who are most vulnerable, lonely, and hurting to provide a meal, new socks, toiletries, and connections to resources that offer a way out. Week after week, rain or shine, the Relief Bus throws a party on the sidewalk for anyone and everyone with a very simple message:

“God has not forgotten you. You are not alone. Tomorrow can be better than today.”
