Backpacks For The Street

Backpacks For The Street is a boots to the ground movement to bring hope and compassion to people living on the streets.

While BFTS started out as a backpacks program, its work now includes providing people struggling with homelessness with clothing (including shoes and work attire), sleeping bags and hot meals, as well as assisting individuals with emergency shelter and housing, food stamps, Medicaid, substance abuse treatment, job training and employment opportunities, et al.

That work is on top of the 110,000 backpacks for food, supplies and necessities we have distributed since we launched.

THO and BFTS are both 95% volunteer-run.

Recent press coverage includes Good Morning America, NBC News, NBC News NY, MSNBC, CNN, ABC News, USA Today, Fox5-NY, New York Post, Good Day New York, Reuters, Patch and CBS-NY, among dozens others.
