St. Paul's House by Morgana Wingard

St. Paul's House has operated as a mission since 1945 with the goals of training Christian workers and serving the poor.  They offer food programs for the hungry as well as job training, transitional housing and discipleship programs for a limited number of men. The food programs include a five-day breakfast soup kitchen and a one day food pantry. Gospel services are held daily.

Kidzone at Father's Heart by Morgana Wingard

The Father's Heart Ministries exists to demonstrate God's love through practical expressions of compassion. Programs include hunger prevention, food stamps access, gang-prevention/youth development, parenting and anger management classes, ESL classes and Alphabet Scoop - a job training/mentoring program for teens. The goal of the Father's Heart is to empower individuals to become self-sufficient, to see families healed and restored and to see them move from dependency to dignity; from poverty to prosperity.

This is part of a series I'm doing for Hope for New York documenting the faces of that make up the incredible programs they support all over the city.
