Humanitas (a humane act, benevolence) is a deeply spiritual ministry.
We are actively engaged in fulfilling the first line of BUF’s Covenant:

“Love is the spirit of this fellowship and service gives it life.”

Chalice, Humanitas

Humanitas is a weekly alms program with the Community Resource Network, reaching out to local citizens who are struggling to rebuild lives turned upside down as a result of an unfortunate decision or circumstances beyond their control. The need is great and growing. BUF’s Humanitas Ministry Action Team provides support to local people in need by listening to their stories and offering limited, emergency, financial assistance in a safe, warm and non-judgmental atmosphere.

As a result of COVID-19, we’re finding that as agency offices are closed and people work from home, information-sharing among organizations can be spotty. So, to help potential clients reach us directly, we’ve launched a simple website, Please click the link for a brief refresher on our mission; then share the site with anyone you know in need of help with gas, groceries, a modest bill, or a one-time expense or other services that Humanitas would normally offer in an in-person setting. Clients may also reach us at (360) 224-5604.
