FCLNY's Bread & Bed Resource Index-NY

Hello! Welcome to Feminists Choosing Life of New York’s  Bread & Bed Resource Directory. This index contains a listing of nutrition and lodging resources in NY with links and contact information for food pantries, soup kitchens, family and women’s shelters, maternity homes (for pregnant women with or without infant children) as well as affordable and transitional housing opportunities. 


Food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, maternity homes, and affordable and transitional housing programs  are categorized according to Six NY Regions. For locations near you, please reference this regional map to find your COUNTY. Within Region Six the information is further divided into the Five Boroughs of New York City.  FCLNY utilizes this map for geographical categorization purposes only.


Several vital resources extend across all Six NY Regions and are denoted at the top of this index.


Recurrent themes in all studies which examine why women seek abortion, are limitations in resources, financial restraints and a lack of familial support. Many women who choose abortion are overwhelmingly driven to abortion because of social reasons, not because their unborn child poses a threat to their physical lives or health. The public perception that elective abortion is a medical need diverts attention and resources away from the real needs of women and thus perpetuates the cycle of poverty and violence, including abortIon. 


As a pro-life feminist organization, FCLNY seeks to inform the public of the drivers of publicly sanctioned lethal violence, including abortion.  We seek to dispel confusion and counter the narrative that fuels abortion and other forms of violence, in NY.  Every mother needs support throughout her pregnancy. Every child needs support while growing up. Our Bread & Bed Resource Index looks to help families find sustenance, the essential resources that every human deserves.

This index is a guide, not a comprehensive listing of resources available to low-income individuals and families in New York State. It is provided for informational purposes only.  This index is not meant to be an endorsement of any of the resources listed.
