Volunteer with Us!

Our volunteers are the heartbeat of our organization. Thanks to the hours served by dedicated individuals, we have been able to keep the cost of our homes very affordable and help our non-profit partners with their renovation and rehab projects.

We can accommodate both individuals and groups, and have volunteer opportunities year-round. We average almost 1000 volunteers per year. Projects range from painting and demolition, to floor refinishing and insulation. In the summer we also have outdoor projects to help with landscaping and the clean-up of our properties. We provide a hands-on and safe environment for volunteers to learn basic construction skills and no previous experience is necessary. Contact us today to learn more and get involved!

Service Learning

716 Ministries currently partners with a number of local colleges to provide service-learning and volunteer opportunities. These schools include Daemen College, University at Buffalo, Buffalo State College and Houghton College. If you are interested in partnering with us for a service learning opportunity, contact Mary, our Community Development Coordinator, today!

Pray with us

We understand that not everyone may be able to physically volunteer with us, but we invite all to partner with us in prayer. Join us as we pray for the following. 

We seek to serve the city, in faith, with the guiding presence of the Holy Spirit. Through the Father’s love, we desire to reach out in practical ways to those in need, and to others serving those in need.

We need wisdom in our practices, and gracious, humble understanding in our relationships, especially with those whom we seek to serve.

We trust that God will continue to meet our financial needs, as we pursue new opportunities of home acquisition. We are thankful for all of the volunteers that have been such an integral part of what we do, and we are confident in God’s ability to continue in that vein of provision.

Please continue to pray for and with us, as we listen for God’s voice and remain obedient to Him.

Thank you and God Bless!
