Aside from offering our guests a hot meal and counseling and referral services, our daily outreach tables connect our guests to a variety of services, including health services, veteran benefits, and housing assistance.

Harlem United staff Jessica and Nicky recently came in to Holy Apostles to let our guests know about a program called the PEARLS program for women (Prevention, Education and Recovery Learning Strategy). The program, which helps with recovery support and relapse prevention, is one of Harlem United’s many great programs that help people in difficult situations get back on their feet.

Nicky was here at Holy Apostles to sign our guests up for PEARLS as part of the staff at Harlem United. But several years ago, Nicky was going through a difficult time in her life, and she came to Holy Apostles as a guest. Since then, she’s turned her life around and is grateful to have the opportunity to help other people in need. “I came here during a very difficult time in my life. It was comforting to know there was a place I could rely on to get hot food. The people at Holy Apostles were always very nice,” Nicky shares.

It was Jessica’s first time at Holy Apostles. “I didn’t realize how big Holy Apostles is. All different types of people come here. This place helps so many people,” Jessica says. “We’re here to help provide some extra support for the guests at Holy Apostles.”
