The Momentum Project
The Momentum Project is a partnership with BOOM!Health to enhance food pantry, congregate meal and nutritional services for homeless New Yorkers living with HIV/AIDS and other chronic medical conditions in the Bronx and Manhattan.  Read more about the partnership here.

Twenty-six years ago, the Momentum Project began as an all-volunteer organization dedicated to feeding disenfranchised New Yorkers living with HIV/AIDS. Today, Momentum has grown into one of New York City’s largest HIV/AIDS organizations providing hot meals, pantry bags, and a wide array of life saving support services at two locations in two boroughs of the city.

What continues to be unique about the Momentum model is that our congregate meal and pantry service attracts the hardest-to-reach individuals with HIV/AIDS, and that we provide all our services in a non-judgmental and supportive environment in our clients’ own neighborhoods. Our comprehensive team of nurses, nutritionists, social workers, chaplains and other specialists engage more than 3,000 low-income individuals with HIV/AIDS every year during meals, and educate, counsel, and link them to primary healthcare, mental health and substance abuse treatment, housing, and other essential services. Momentum works because of the pooling of public and private sector resources, our dedicated staff, committed Board of Directors, caring volunteers, and the trust of thousands of HIV/AIDS clients and their families.
