About Nazareth Housing

Nazareth Housing is a 501(c)(3), not-for-profit, non-sectarian organization with a long and proud history of innovation and advocacy in the field of housing, emergency shelter and homelessness prevention for low-income families. Founded in 1983, Nazareth Housing grew from the grass roots efforts of families and individuals on the Lower East Side dedicated to preventing and ending homelessness through urban homesteading. Under the direction of Sr. Marion Agnes Daniel, MSBT, Nazareth Housing refurbished buildings and taught individuals and families critical skills to maintain stable housing. Thirty years later, we operate two buildings with forty (40) units of permanent housing and forty six (46) units of emergency family shelter. With a strong presence in the Lower East Side and Harlem communities, Nazareth plans to expand services to the Bronx in the coming year. We offer families and individuals, throughout all five boroughs, with housing counseling, secure food resources at our pantry, LifeLab workshops at our Center for Learning and Self-Sufficiency (CLASS), and youth programming.

Sister Marion Agnes Daniel Special Appeal


Sister Marion Agnes Daniel began her work in New York City in 1979. With a doctorate in philosophy, and training in social work, she took up the cause of housing as a fundamental human right. Every project received her full dedication. To this day, many recall her resourceful and creative solutions to getting things done. Help end homelessness in New York City and continue the legacy of our founder with a donation in her tribute.
