When the ties that bind families together are frayed, the very core of our community is weakened. It is this truth that serves as the impetus for the Buffalo Urban League’s concentration on the family unit.
The Buffalo Urban League’s Family Preservation and Support Services include comprehensive child abuse and neglect programs that strive to keep families together in a safe, stable, and healthy environment. We firmly believe that children, even in the midst of a family crisis, can often be safely protected and nurtured within their own homes. However, in instances where the family is unable to be kept together or reunited, the Buffalo Urban League seeks to place children in a good home through its Foster Care and Adoption Services Program.
Family support extends to our Senior Multi-Service Center. Our seniors are provided the social, emotional, and physical support they need to enhance their quality of life and help them live independently and productively for as long as they are able.
