About Community Missions

Community Missions of Niagara Frontier, Inc. (CMI) has provided a unique blend of services to address the needs of the Niagara community since its founding in 1925.

The initial population served was homeless individuals and families. Since its founding, CMI programs have evolved to meet the needs of its community. The agency now provides 19 programs between 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, juvenile justice involved youth, youth and adults with psychiatric challenges, persons living with HIV/AIDS, trafficked youth and adults, and ex-offender parole individuals. In general, CMI serves a vulnerable population of individuals that, through a variety of circumstances, have been marginalized, overlooked and challenging in their presentations and behaviors.

From Our Statement of Religion and Faith

As a Christian agency, our chosen role in terms of religion and faith is to express our belief that everyone benefits from spiritual growth. We will provide resources, programs, and community linkages, without proselytizing, that will enhance spiritual growth and wholeness in the faith/spiritual tradition of an individual's choice and support them as they seek to grow in that tradition.
