Ansche Chesed Homeless Shelter

251 West 100th Street New York, NY 10025 Phone (212) 865-0600 The Ansche Chesed Homeless Shelter has been operating since at least 1987. It opens every night at 7:00pm on the synagogue’s second floor to provide 10 men a safe place to eat, shower, socialize, and sleep. By 6:30am the next morning, the guests have departed to either their jobs or their sponsor agencies where they participate in programming to address the issues that led them to homelessness. On average, a guest will stay at the shelter for a few months before moving on to a more stable living situation such as an SRO, group-assisted living or subsidized housing. Volunteers are needed to staff the opening (7pm-9pm) and overnight (9 p.m.-6 a.m.) shifts.
