RESTORED LIVES

Meet Frank

Frank sat alone in his apartment, hungry, sad and frightened.

He’d struggled with depression all his life, but he’d always managed to work, take care of himself and find some joy in living.

Then the pandemic hit in 2020 and a mandated quarantine left him isolated and idle, sending his depression spiraling out of control. He stopped eating and caring for himself, compromising his health and threatening his life.

Meet Lisa

Lisa moved to Buffalo with big dreams for her future.
“I really wanted to be a social worker, and I came here to go to college.” She and her son moved into campus family housing, and then the unexpected happened.

“The pandemic hit, and everything went crazy,” Lisa says. Her classes went online, and her son’s schooling became virtual, too.

“I had to choose between educating myself or educating my son… I chose my son.”

Back in December, Bob from Haun Welding Supply & Haun Specialty Gases came to the Mission to donate $1,200 and asked about ways that they could help more. He quickly discovered the need for an in-house cutter and welder at the Mission for our Maintenance team, and decided to donate a multi-use torch for cutting and welding valued at $1,600! 🙌🏼Thank you again Bob, and everyone at Haun Welding Supply! We are so thankful for this wonderful donation. This essential tool will help the Mission do more maintenance inhouse through our wonderfully skilled staff, and save us money! #BuffaloCityMission #Donation #BuffaloNY ... See MoreSee Less
