RESTORED LIVES

Meet Amanda

What does Amanda remember most about her parents? Sadly, that they were never around… As her mom and dad struggled with addiction, their abandonment left a painful hole in her heart. Then, when she was only 7 years old, Amanda was sexually abused. Desperate to relieve the burden of all this trauma, as a teen she turned to drugs and alcohol. “I started looking for love and affection in places I didn’t belong,” she says. Instead of love, she only found more heartbreak… getting trapped in an abusive relationship for 10 years… losing her children… and facing jail time. “My whole life had fallen apart,” Amanda says, “But in jail, I met God.”

RESTORED LIVES

Meet Marcellus

Marcellus never imagined he would be homeless. He had a good job driving a truck. He owned his own home. Life was good. But things started to unravel after a falling out with his family left him all alone, without any emotional support network.
Heartbroken, Marcellus began slipping into what would become crippling depression. He eventually lost his job, then his home, and he relied on soup kitchens to get by. Thankfully, a kind stranger told him he could find lasting help at Buffalo City Mission, and he made his way to our door.

Mr. and Mrs. Chris and Brandi Alfiero were married on a beautiful fall day in October, surrounded by their loving family and friends. Following their ceremony, as the guests entered the reception, they noticed that the ‘gift table’ wasn’t what most would expect. It was, rather, a donation table with a donation box and information describing the Buffalo City Mission and the impact that the Mission has on the WNY Community. The newlyweds had requested that in lieu of gifts, that donations would be made out to the Buffalo City Mission to help those who need it most. Brandi stated that she truly hopes that her and Chris can possibly inspire others to give in a similar way. Thank you again, Mr. and Mrs. Alfiero, for this wonderful selfless act of generosity. We are truly blessed by your kindness. My God continue to bless you both in your marriage! ❤📸 Alana Adetola Arts Photography, LLC #BuffaloCityMission #WNYCommunity #BuffaloCares ... See MoreSee Less
