HOPE is Greater Than Fear

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we are quickly adapting to the needs of those struggling in the Buffalo Community. Our Shelter for Homeless Families is continuing to provide a safe place for families as they navigate the challenges that COVID-19 brings. Our Emergency Disaster Services team is out serving our first responders as they keep our community safe. Even though some of our face-to-face programs are closed, we are still providing food, personal care items and meeting the needs of our Golden Age Center Seniors and Pathway of Hope clients. 

Our Food Pantries remain open and available for those struggling to put food on the table for their families – some of our pantries have expanded their service hours and days to meet the needs of their community. Food insecurity has grown tremendously since the beginning of the pandemic; in some areas, we have served over four times the normal amount of families. 

With the help of other dedicated community partners, we have been able to...

  • Host a drive-up food distribution on the West Side of Buffalo with the help of FeedMore WNY.
  • Provide breakfast for the 100 homeless individuals staying overnight at the Code 19 Shelter, located in the Flickinger Center. Thank you, General Mills for your generous cereal donation!
  • Provide breakfast and lunch to the healthcare workers administering tests at the new COVID-19 Testing Site located at the Walmart on Walden Avenue.
