About Us

WELCOME TO PROJECT HOSPITALITY

We are an interfaith effort, committed to serving the needs of hungry and homeless people. We serve people with special needs — people living with HIV and AIDS, people using substances, people living with mental illness — with an array of on-site professional services. We offer a comprehensive continuum of compassionate care that begins with street outreach, shelter, and soup kitchen and food pantry, and extends to treatment, other clinical and support services, and transitional and permanent supportive housing.

Please feel the warmth of our welcome. Visit with us and learn about the work we do.

If you have any suggestions, please share them with us.   If you have need, perhaps we can help.   If you have something to contribute, please be generous.

Our Mission

It is the mission of Project Hospitality, Inc. to reach out to community members who are hungry, homeless or otherwise in need in order to work with them to achieve their self-sufficiency — thereby enhancing the quality of life for our community. Project Hospitality seeks to realize its mission both by advocating for those in need and by establishing a comprehensive continuum of care that begins with the provision of food, clothing and shelter and extends to other services which include health care, mental health, alcohol and substance abuse treatment, HIV care, education, vocational training, legal assistance, and transitional and permanent housing.

Continuum of Care

Having identified the special needs for mental health, chemical dependency treatment, and HIV care for the population of homeless people we serve on Staten Island, Project Hospitality has developed a comprehensive continuum of compassionate care over the years to meet those special needs while providing the basics of food, clothing, and shelter and developing models of housing that would provide long-term support with the highest level of self-sufficiency possible. This continuum of care includes clinical care and a variety of housing models — emergency, transitional, and permanent supportive — to meet the needs of multiply diagnosed homeless persons.

The multidisciplinary and integrated service delivery continuum of HIV support services provides a safety net for many clients with multiple needs in addition to living with AIDS. It provides our clients the support of a larger recovery community, where living with HIV is one factor among other disabilities and life stories.
