MCCNY Charities Announces Name Change

MCCNY Charities will now be known as Sylvia Rivera's Place

MCCNY Charities, INC. one of the longest operating LGBTQIA+ homeless youth shelters and food pantries, has announced today that the organization will be operating under a new name and now will be known as Sylvia Rivera's Place. This includes Sylvia's Place, a homeless youth shelter and the Sylvia Rivera Memorial Food Pantry, as well as a clothing closet and various community programming.

This name change was a natural evolution of the services offered, as well as an homage to the founding and history of the organization, inspired by the work and vision of the late, great queer icon, Sylvia Rivera.

Along with this change, the organization has revealed a newly designed company logo and new website, which can be found at "We hope this new name and website will help better share our services, and reflect our long-standing impact and relationship with the LGBTQIA+ Community in NYC," says Michael Easterling, Acting Director.
