LEFSA is a non-profit, interdenominational, empowerment ministry sponsored by the Sisters of Charity of New York that serves people who are homeless living in city-sponsored shelters and on the streets of New York City.

LEFSA was founded in September 1986 as a response to the massive situation of homelessness that existed in NYC at that time and continues to exist today.
