Monthly Missions

The heart of Mission Change is our Monthly Missions, a chance to work first hand with those in need in our community. Whether it's performing much needed maintenance on a shelter for women and children escaping abuse, packing boxes for the local Food Bank, or simply spending a fun-filled Saturday playing games with at-risk, inner-city kids, every month features another opportunity to affect positive change in the world outside your door.

The Village

Housed in the middle of one of Albany's lowest-income, highest-crime neighborhoods, the Village is Mission Change's after-school program designed to guide 25 area students into becoming strong stewards of the community.

Five days a week, the Village offers homework help, tutoring, and extra sessions like art, reading, educational games, and community service projects.

Serve Teams

Our Serve Teams program offers groups of out-of-town volunteers a chance to learn how best to serve their communities by helping the people and organizations in need within our own.

This week of hands-on work has a way of changing not only the lives of those being helped, but equally those doing the serving.

Sleep Out

Mission Change's annual Sleep Out is a unique night of community fundraising in which participants spend the night outside in a cardboard box, tent or other makeshift shelter.

Although we could never recreate the real-life experience of what it is truly like to be homeless, sleeping out for the night can help us all focus on how to make a difference in ending the widespread hunger and homelessness right here in our area.
