City Mission of Schenectady, founded in 1906, seeks to comprehensively meet the needs of the poor in a manner that dignifies and strengthens the individual, the family, and the community.
They want to help people who are in need right now by meeting basic needs like food, shelter and clothing. Providing these life essentials are at the core of their mission.
In addition, their hope is that they can do more than just meet basic needs. They look to transform lives by providing spiritual guidance, counseling, training, classes, life and job skills training. Mike Saccocio is the CEO of the City Mission of Schenectady.
