Welcome to the Dwelling Place of NY
The Dwelling Place, a sponsored ministry of The Franciscan Sisters of Allegany, NY, is a privately-funded transitional residence for homeless women located in Midtown Manhattan. Since 1977, we’ve provided shelter, sustenance and support to thousands of women. Our safe, healing, and structured environment offers women the space and time to develop a sustainable plan for building a healthy, independent lifestyle. Whether you’re here as a donor or a volunteer, or as a woman seeking shelter, we hope that The Dwelling Place will find a special place in your heart.
Visit The Dwelling Place booth at the 9th Avenue International Food Festival on May 20th and 21st.
