Emergency Shelter Network

New Yorkers Coming Together To Help Those In Need For More Than 30 Years

The Emergency Shelter Network of Faith-Based and Community Organizations, Inc. (ESN-NYC) is a non-profit devoted to aiding, supporting and representing its members: a coalition of shelters, operated primarily by volunteers, serving homeless adult individuals throughout the five boroughs of New York City.

We are proud members of the Human Services Council and the Homeless Services United.

There are over 10,000 churches, synagogues, mosques, and other community organizations in New York City. Participating in hunger and homelessness issues is often an important part of the mission of these organizations. E.S.N. can provide advice and support as your organization explores starting a shelter.
