Don’t Walk By (DWB) is an annual winter outreach in New York City where more than 1,000 volunteers walk through the streets of Manhattan on a search and rescue mission for the homeless. Volunteers seek to offer every single homeless person or those in need food, warm clothing, a blanket and the opportunity to get off the streets and enter a shelter and residential program.
Our Vision: Through an alliance of influential organizations, volunteers, outreach experts and resource providers, see that every man and woman living on Manhattan’s streets are offered a chance to transform their lives.
Our Mission: In response to Christ’s teaching in the parable of the Good Samaritan, we offer every single street person food, blankets, but most importantly, an opportunity to enter into a holistic residential recovery program that offers them new life in Christ and educational, vocational and housing solutions. This mission is primarily carried out during four Saturdays in typically in February in an outreach called Don’t Walk By.
Don’t Walk By is sponsored and executed through a partnership of faith-based organizations that serve the homeless population of New York City year-round. Together with the Rescue Alliance, Calvary will participate in Don't Walk By on Saturday, February 10. Click to learn more and register to volunteer.
