Here at Buffalo City Mission, we take a holistic approach to poverty and homelessness – working to end the root causes.
From the moment an individual walks through our doors, we offer loving acceptance, acknowledging the worth and dignity of each person as a valued child of God. Often, it’s the first time they have been treated with deep, honest respect…it’s a healthy pathway for building a promising future.
Buffalo City Mission’s Women and Children’s Shelter – (Cornerstone Manor) – is not simply a place which offers food and shelter to those in need, it is a place that provides a safe haven for which women and mom’s with children can have the opportunity to transition safely and successfully through the Mission’s Transitional Housing Program, where sorrows can be turned into joy so hope for a better tomorrow can begin.
“It’s been a really big blessing for my life and my daughter’s life to even have an opportunity to stay here [at Cornerstone Manor]. I’m just really grateful. And I just hope that this opportunity’s available for generations to keep helping people.”
– Amanda (Cornerstone Manor Resident)
Living on the Streets of Buffalo is not a safe option for anyone. Here at the Mission, we are able to provide a safe and welcoming environment for our community guests that walk through our doors. We provide the following services in order to build trust and develop relationships with the people we serve, encouraging them to consider long-term solutions:
Broken relationships, job loss, lack of education, and drug and alcohol addiction are common obstacles our homeless neighbors face on a daily basis. Over time, these struggles can become their new normal, until all they can see in themselves is brokenness, hardship and failure. This leads them to believe they will never be able to make a change. Through the Mission’s Transitional Housing Program, we equip each individual with personalized care to overcome these challenges and develop a renewed sense of hope and identity. These services include:
Give now to help men, women and children overcome homelessness and find a path to better lives.
