Ellen Grant I went to The Buffalo City Mission to consult and ended up being a part of the fabric of staff who are so dedicated to making the lives of men, women and children better in our WNY Community. The staff, board and volunteers work beyond what is expected to ensure the entire community knows there are those who want just the basics in life, but are overwhelmingly grateful when they receive the extra dollar, meal or clothing for themselves and their own loved ones who come to seek shelter, physical and spiritual food. The community will never cease needing the Buffalo City Mission!

My story is a bit personal. I have been in recovery since 1994 and am very active in a 12 step program. So many of my friends began their path to sobriety and clean time right at the City Mission. They were given a chance when they had no one. Because of this, they are clean, productive members of society today. Nice work, City Mission!

The Buffalo City Mission has been a leader in our community's efforts to assist the homeless. They are the largest men's shelter in Western New York and also serve women in families at Cornerstone Manor. When there is a need in this community to collaborate with other agencies to help those less fortunate, the City Mission is always at the table simply asking "what do you need us to do?" When the community saw a need to open Warming Centers during Buffalo's cold winter nights, the City Mission was there helping to make it work and opening their doors to the most vulnerable homeless. They are always at the forefront of the community effort to end homelessness.
