Starting in September.

Outreach is essential to our identification as a community. Add your service to ours us as we do our part to satisfy needs all around.


In 2019, the Urban Outreach Center of NYC was granted independent, non-profit status (after being a part of the Jan Hus Presbyterian Church — now Avenue Church NYC — mission for 35 years).

In September 2020, the UOCNYC will operate from its beautiful new 5,000 square foot home in the lower level of our building at 1745 1ST Ave. The UOC will offer mail distribution, clothing, a resource/jobs center and food pantry. Learn more at www.UOCNYC.org and @UOCNYC


During the COVID-19 crisis, hunger doesn't take a break so neither does UOCNYC.
