he Ladies of Charity of the Archdiocese of New York was founded in 1902 and has been serving those in need for over 115 years. Our Mission Statement; “We provide practical and spiritual support to people facing life’s challenges: illness, isolation and unmet immediate needs through member and volunteer efforts and donor generosity”, expresses the commitment of our 400 members and volunteers to serve individuals in need, regardless of religious affiliation.

Our core ministries are the Layette ministry, the Gifts of Comfort ministry and the ASK ministry. The layette ministry provides diapers, infant clothing, blankets and other essential items to expectant mothers. The Gifts of Comfort ministry combines visits to nursing homes and the homebound with a package containing personal care and gift items. Our ASK ministry is an informational and advocacy service, conducted in partnership with parishes, for seniors and senior caregivers. In addition to our ministries, members actively fundraise and contribute to provide the necessary funds to fulfill our mission. .
