About City Mission
City Mission exists to meet the needs of the hungry and homeless in our community. We help people who are in poverty, we help people get out of poverty and we help people stay out of poverty.
We do this through our three branches of service:
- Community Outreach & Emergency Shelter Services (meals served to the community on a daily basis and emergency shelters for both men and women, as well as women with children)
- Bridges to Freedom (both long and short-term Discipleship & Recovery Programs)
- Transitional Housing and ASPIRE Program which sees people through their transition (after graduating from Bridges to Freedom) and into sustainability
City Mission does not receive any government funds. We depend entirely on the contributions of concerned individuals, churches and businesses. All contributions are tax-deductible as permitted by law.
Our Mission Statement:
The City Mission of Schenectady, founded in 1906, is dedicated to sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ in word and deed. The ministries are seeking to comprehensively meet the needs of the poor in a manner that dignifies and strengthens the individual, the family, and the community.

City Mission of Schenectady will not sell, trade or share a donor’s personal information with anyone else, nor send donor mailings on behalf of other organizations. City Mission will only share personal information on rare occasions once the donor has given us specific permission to do so.
Because City Mission is dedicated to accountability and transparency, we undergo an independent audit and submit a Form-990 to the Internal Revenue Service each year. Both of these items are then submitted to the New York State Charities Bureau, the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA) and the Association of Gospel Rescue Missions (AGRM).
