Our Agency

The Chautauqua County Rural Ministry is an interfaith human service agency. It is headquartered in the Coburn Block which is located in the core area of the City of Dunkirk. The building was built in 1868 by Dunkirk Iron Works and is the headquarters for all of Rural Ministry programs.

The Rural Ministry has been in existence for over five decades and currently operates twelve programs. CCRM has a strong foundation in the community and provides services for which no other organization is known for.

Each year thousands of families are assisted through the operations with the basics of food, clothing, shelter and work opportunity.
