Our Leadership

Aubrey Calhoun, Executive Director CEO Buffalo City Mission

Aubrey Calhoun

Executive Director & Chief Executive Officer

I am so pleased you want to learn more about Buffalo City Mission and the ways you can join us in our ministry. Since our doors opened in 1917, we have served our neighbors throughout Western New York… helping them overcome hunger and homelessness to find hope, healing and new life in Jesus Christ.

On behalf of our Board of Directors and staff, I invite you to join us as we work to strengthen our community by restoring families and rebuilding lives.

If you are already a supporter, please accept my heartfelt thanks for your faithful friendship. Your generosity offers rescue, restoration and renewal to countless men, women and children. Because of you, they are leading more stable, healthy and productive lives that are firmly rooted in Christ.

If you are new to Buffalo City Mission, I would love to welcome you to our family. Please take a moment to explore our website and read our stories. My prayer is that as you learn more about our ministry, you will be inspired and encouraged to volunteer someday… come in for a tour… or donate a meal to someone in need.

Whether you’re new to the Mission or have been a friend for years, I covet your prayers for the work we do and the guests we serve. And please consider how the Lord could use your time, talents and treasure to support the life transformation that takes place here.

Any dollar you give – or hour of time you donate – will make a lasting impact in our community. Together, we can make a difference! This is YOUR city, and this is your Mission.

May God bestow His abundant blessings on you!
Serving Christ together,

Aubrey Calhoun
