Five Points Mission, New York

This institution was founded in 1850, by an association of benevolent ladies, and incorporated by an act of the Legislature, passed on March 20th, 1856. Its location is number sixty-one Park street, nearly opposite the Five Points House of Industry.

The building was erected in 1853. It is constructed of brick, and is four stories high. It furnishes a chapel, several large and well conditioned school rooms, and apartments for a limited number of permanent inmates. The edifice is plainly and substantially built, and is well suited for the purposes of the mission.

The objects of the institution are three-fold:
  • 1st. To provide food, clothing, and other necessaries for the poor of all classes.
  • 2d. To properly instruct orphan, abandoned and destitute children, and, as far as practicable, secure for them situations in families.
  • 3d. To furnish shelter and temporary aid for those without homes, and needing protection and care.
The institution, from its organization, has been maintained largely by private donations and collections in churches. It has received occasional appropriations from the city treasury, but no aid from the State, until the past year.

The property is estimated to be worth $78,000, and the institution is free from debt. The receipts for the past year were $24,130.29; and the expenditures, $23, 132.02. There were also received from bequests for building purposes $22,166.31, not included in the above statement.

The schools bear upon their rolls nearly one thousand children, with a daily average attendance of over four hundred. The scholars, whenever it is needed, are furnished with clothing, and each pupil is provided daily with a dinner. During the past year, eleven children were adopted into families, fifty-five were otherwise secured comfortable homes, and one hundred and twenty-six adults were provided with situations.

A free library, composed principally of books, periodicals and papers, donated to the institution, has recently been opened. This offers a comfortable and attractive place for those without homes, to spend their evenings and leisure hours; and it is anticipated by the managers that much good will result from its influence.

The institution was visited October 25th. It is controlled by a board of lady managers, assisted by an advisory committee of gentlemen. A superintendent is in immediate charge, and the schools are conducted by competent female teachers. The institution, at the time of inspection, was in excellent condition, and its affairs appear to be well conducted.
