Our ministry serves those individuals who are fifty and older with the goal of helping them regain their independence and security and assisting them in moving to appropriate permanent facilities.
Established in 1987 by the Eastern District of the Moravian Church in North America, MOD is funded solely by church and private donations and a nominal monthly program fee. MOD does not receive any city, state, or federal funding.
MOD is not a drop-in shelter or a nursing facility but is a safe, clean, drug and alcohol-free transitional home (called Moravian House) that provides private and semi-private rooms for up to 41 homeless adults who are just “one step away” from independence. Individuals come to MOD recommended by a shelter or agency in New York. Upon admission, each new resident receives a personal service plan to address the causes of homelessness and to build greater self-reliance. Residents have their own mailboxes and also email addresses; they also have the use of the kitchen and the Common Room.
Moravian Music Foundation
We were founded in 1956, to preserve, study, edit and publish the music retained in the Archives of the Moravian Church in America, Northern and Southern Provinces.
The Moravian Music Foundation preserves, shares, and celebrates Moravian musical culture.
Since our establishment, we have acquired many additional items, including the Irving Lowens Collection of early American tunebooks; the band books of the 26th North Carolina Regimental Band (from the Civil War); and a reference library of over 6,000 volumes, specializing in Protestant church music and American music history.
We are responsible for many first modern-day performances of music from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. This organization is an important resource for scholars, performers, church musicians, and students worldwide. Over 40 orchestral works from our holdings have been edited and placed in the Fleisher Collection of the Philadelphia (PA) Free Library.
The collections of the Moravian Music Foundation contain some 10,000 manuscripts and early imprints of vocal and instrumental music, sacred and secular, from the sixteenth through twentieth centuries. Not all of this was written by Moravian composers, but it is all music that the Moravians used and enjoyed. Included in the collections of the Moravian Music Foundation are works by Haydn and Mozart, J. C. Bach, Abel, Johann Stamitz, and a host of lesser-known composers. A number of these are the only known copies in the world.
The Moravian collections, then, provide a cross-section of classical musical culture, placing the masters in their proper historical perspective.
Established in 1964, Mt. Morris Camp & Retreat Center is a year-round premier camp, retreat, and conference center that serves hundreds of groups each year.

This project supports children who are deprived of care and educational opportunity due to caste, ethnicity or remote geography, in northern India at the Moravian Institute. The main campus of Moravian Institute is located in Rajpur and delivers K-12 education in English in a loving and supportive Christian environment. There are 280 students studying in Rajpur, approximately 90 of whom live on campus in dormitories that have been built using funds donated by Moravians. There are two satellite Moravian Institute campuses: one in Chiktan and one in Binnakandi, where K-8 education is delivered in a similar manner.
The Moravian Institute is rooted in the Moravian tradition and children are exposed to optional Christian worship on campus, although religion is not considered when granting admission. The vast majority of students at the Moravian Institute are from non-Christian families: Hindu, Buddhist, Muslim, Sikh & Indigenous. When making admissions decisions, preference is given to children without parents and to girls, who without support are often forced into difficult circumstances. The children who graduate from Moravian Institute go on to University, get jobs, and support their families and the communities from which they came. A child who receives support at Moravian Institute often helps pull many individuals up and out of poverty.
Donations go directly to help pay for a child’s tuition, room and board at the Moravian Institute.

Your Moravian Province or District can take a more systemic approach to ministry. Your unrestricted gift to your Moravian Province or District can help the church address larger problems across political constructs.
