The Sharing Community began in 1983 as a coordinated response by community and religious groups to the rising tide of poverty and homelessness in the Getty Square area of southwest Yonkers. Led by St. John’s Episcopal Church, Getty Square, and St. Peter’s Roman Catholic Church, we established a community-based soup kitchen and homeless shelter program in space borrowed from community churches. Over the years, the simple soup kitchen and shelter for the homeless moved into its own facility and quickly expanded the array of services we offered to meet the changing needs of the communities of southwest Yonkers.

An independent nonprofit corporation since 1984, The Sharing Community currently offers permanent and transitional housing, nineteen bed shelter for men, emergency sleep site services, harm reduction counseling, prevention interventions and education.
