Journey's End Refugee Services is a Christian community-based organization with the mission of welcoming refugees without regard to ethnic origin or creed and to assist them to become healthy, independent, contributing members of the community. Our group has decided to participate in Journey's End Home Again Program. This program helps provide refugees with a safe and welcoming home when they arrive.

Our mission is to set up an apartment for a refugee family that has lost and left so much behind. We have been given a list of items needed to set up the apartment, this includes furniture, silverware, appliances, and more. Any contribution would be greatly appreciated! Please help us join together as a community and give back in a way that will benefit both the arriving family and Buffalo for years to come.

View our list and see how you can help!

You can also submit a donation to our project - all funds will directly benefit Journey's End incoming families.
