Our Agency

319 Washington Ave. Dunkirk, NY 14048



The Chautauqua County Rural Ministry is an interfaith human service agency. In September 2018, Chautauqua County Rural Ministry moved from its location of nearly three decades to 319 Washington Avenue. Previously, this building was a health care residential facility, and Rural Ministry has utilized the 41 room building for their headquarters and 14 programs.

The Rural Ministry has been in existence for over five decades, and currently operates 14 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.
