Call for Help

Welcome to Community Missions

Since its founding in 1925, Community Missions (CMI) has provided a unique blend of services to address the needs of the Niagara community. In general, CMI serves a vulnerable population of individuals that, through a variety of circumstances, have been underserved, marginalized, overlooked and challenging in their presentations and behaviors.

The initial population served was homeless individuals and families, which are still served today. The agency currently provides 19 programs within its four divisions: Crisis & Community Services, Mental Health Housing Services, Mental Health Recovery Services, and Youth Services.

The agency serves a diverse set of populations, including youth, adults, families, homeless, youth involved with the juvenile justice system, youth and adults with psychiatric disabilities, persons living with HIV/AIDS, and ex-offender parole individuals.

Community Missions' Thanksgiving Prayer

God of all Creation, we thank you for your many blessing as we celebrate Thanksgiving. Thank you for the chance to serve our neighbors who are hungry or homeless. Thank you for a chance to help those struggling with mental illness as they pursue recovery and overcome the unjust stigma they endure. Thank you for allowing us to be present for youth and their families as they strive to overcome the difficulties of growing up in the midst of adversity. Thank you for opening our hearts and arms to help those living with HIV/AIDS as they seek to rebuild their lives when all others have fled them in fear. Thank you for the opportunity to ease the difficult transition to freedom for those who have been released from prison. And we thank you for the many individuals, businesses, communities of faith, foundations, and government agencies that make all this work possible through their gifts, donations, support and prayers. O Lord, we thank you for all this, and humbly ask for your continued blessings as we go about the work you have called us to do in the world. Amen.
