Tony and Bernadette are two of Crisis Service’s OASIS volunteers. They work with our Trauma Teams to help those who have experienced recent traumas, such as suicides or homicides. They can speak to these trauma victims from their hearts and their own shattering experience. You see, Tony & Bernadette’s son took his own life. Listen to their story.
Yesterday, today, and tomorrow, Crisis Services is making a difference. You can help! Make your secure online contribution here and know that your gift to the Fall Appeal will provide for meaningful change in someone’s life. Someone like Tony or Bernadette. Thank you!

We are selling tickets for the Buffalo Bills Alumni Foundation’s 11th Annual Charity Raffle from now until January 19, 2014. Purchasing a ticket not only includes you in the drawing for the outstanding prizes listed below, but each ticket holder is invited to the drawing reception at the Adams Mark Hotel in downtown Buffalo on January 19, 2014 at 7 pm (in between the AFC and NFC Championship games). Ticket holders need not be present to win, but we hope you’ll be there as you will have the unique opportunity to meet some of the Buffalo Bill’s alumni legends and enjoy some refreshments too!
1st Place — $2,500 Cash
2nd Place — 42″ LED-HD TV
3rd Place — $500 cash
4th Place — Canon Digital Camera
Sound too good to be true? It’s NOT, this is the Buffalo Bills Alumni Foundation and they are all about giving back to the community! It gets even better…only 1000 tickets are sold, that means the odds of winning are at least 1 in 250! But then again, everyone is a winner in the 11th Annual Buffalo Bills Charity Raffle, as all proceeds go directly to help various charitable organizations throughout Western New York, including Crisis Services!
Tickets are $50 each
Call 831-4467 to reserve your ticket today.
Wouldn’t this make a great holiday gift?
We are, once again, selling the City Dining Cards and Drinking Decks as a fundraiser for Crisis Services. These make great stocking stuffers, gifts for that hard to buy for person, hostess gifts, etc. They are good until the end of 2014.
This year, they’ve changed the Drinking Deck to Buy One Get One and that deck is only $10 for 25 cards!!
All proceeds benefit Crisis Services.

Tell your friends, tell your family!
Listen. Listen closely. From every corner of our community you can hear them. The voices of people touched. Their stories, their pain, their courage.
The voices of those touched by tremendous loss and the voices of those pulled out of darkness. Collectively these voices tell a story. A story that started more than forty years ago but one that resonates even more strongly today. A story that inspires many to want to help and many more that want to give. We think you’ll want to give too.
Hear what people have to say about their personal experiences with Crisis Services — these first hand accounts are as moving as they are inspiring — and see what your support can do!
If you’d like to add your own voice to the solution, please support the Crisis Services Fall Appeal Campaign today by making a secure online contribution today.
Thanks to all who attended
