Volunteer Programs

Volunteers are a vital part of Buffalo City Mission.  Hundreds of individuals, businesses and churches share their time and talents each year, providing valuable services to our programs and facilities.  Working hand-in-hand with our staff and seeing firsthand the men, women and children we serve is a life-changing experience for many volunteers.  Often our volunteers tell us:

"We came to give to others but ended up receiving much more in return."
