Community Helping Community
Here are all of our amazing community partners and a brief description of what services their organizations are dedicated to delivering to our community!
Save the Michaels is designed to support individuals, family members, and loved ones who have been affected by addiction. If you are ready to enter detox or inpatient treatment for your substance use, we will work with you and find you placement at a facility in NYS. We will provide you transportation to inpatient treatment anywhere in NYS, and as long as you complete successfully, we will provide you with transportation back home. We understand and recognize that there are multiple pathways to recovery, so we offer many other services to help aid you in your recovery journey if you are not interested in inpatient treatment. We are staffed with Recovery Coaches who meet you where you are at in your active use/recovery, and will work alongside you to provide support and resources for your recovery.

Veterans do not live, work, and serve in isolation from the community, the Nation, or the world. The issue of suicide in the U.S. also affects the Veteran population. That's why we are working with an extensive network of community partners across the country to prevent suicide among all Veterans including those who may never come to VA for care. Learn more about our National Strategy for Preventing Veteran Suicide.
The VA Suicide Prevention Team will be providing trauma workshops!
Back To Basics Outreach Ministries began by offering counseling services and a food pantry. Throughout the years, services were expanded to transitional housing for those being released from prison, as well as prisoner rehab, court advocacy, youth strengthening programs and violence interruption. In 2012, the City of Buffalo provided funds to Back to Basics to administer an Anti-Violence Initiative called Buffalo Peacemakers. In 2014, Back to Basics received a $360,000 NY State grant for SNUG. In 2020, Back to Basics was serving close to 200 people a week with its various programs. During the pandemic of 2020, Back to Basics and the Buffalo Peacemakers helped to distribute over 3,000 lunches a day for the Buffalo Public Schools while kids were home working remotely.
As Pastor Giles so aptly puts it, “We take broken lives, give them hope and God makes it happen!”
The Peacemakers mentor youth into healthy lifestyles. We work to build relationships, gather information, and mediate gang conflicts to prevent violence.
The objective of the Buffalo Peacemakers Violence and Gang Intervention Program is to provide proactive intervention into the cycle of violence in the lives of gang-involved or at-risk youth. The staff of the program will be drawn from six existing peace-making groups that have evolved naturally in response to community needs.
