St. Luke's Mission of Mercy Code Blue Shelter Supporter

St. Luke’s Mission of Mercy is part of the Buffalo Code Blue Collaborative and through combined outreach efforts, they search the streets on bitterly cold nights looking for people in need of food and shelter, encouraging them to go to a Code Blue shelter.

St. Luke’s Mission of Mercy has provided Code Blue shelter in the past and continues to support Code Blue programs in Buffalo, NY. Many factors have substantially increased the need for meals among the homeless and food-insecure population and distributes over 2,000 meals per day. This significant need has shifted St. Luke’s Mission of Mercy’s to focus on providing meals to the population at Restoration Society, Inc. Code Blue Shelter
