My name is Ronnie Williams. I was a client at The Buffalo City Mission between 2009 and 2011. When I first came to the Mission, I didn't know how to do the right thing. Because of their programs, I am now employed and I go to work Happy every day. I also have my own apartment that I am able to come home to every night. I now volunteer at the Mission and can give hope to others because I have been there and can relate to their situations. I thank God for the City Mission. God Bless You and Thank you!
I'm a former resident of the Buffalo City Mission and I graduated from their Discipleship program. This program has changed my life so much, you just dont know! Prior to entering the program, I was heavily addicted to drugs, now I have over 3 years clean and serene. I have had my own apartment for almost a year now and still going strong! I want to give all praise and glory to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, amen! My name is Michael Norman, I am an alumni of the Discipleship program. I graduated in April 2012. I just can't thank the Mission enough for giving me the opportunity to learn how to live once again!
Sometimes our lives take a path that leads us in a direction unintended. Organizations such as City MIssion are tantamount in gently nudging us back into the proper lane. I arrived in Buffalo from Boston with a job - so that was a good start... but no money to feed myself until the first check arrived. City Missions community meals program is well run, organized and orderly. The staff are kind and courteous and I for one (and many) appreciate such things when we are a little on the edge of life. I intend to both volunteer, and donate to City Mission once I am up and running so to speak. I applaud them for their unwavering commitment to the Buffalo area people in need.
