A Greeting from Our Leadership

Welcome! On behalf of everyone connected with us, we are pleased to share with you who we are and what we do.

Operating from nearly 60 sites in Western New York, we are proud to offer a wide array of human services. We are highly rated by Charity Navigator and the Council on Accreditation, a testament to our focus on transparency, sound fiscal management and high quality services.

We are hope for people through all seasons of life - including ensuring safety and nurture for children who are neglected or at risk of harm, reaching out to children and teens with intensive family therapy, getting young adults back on an education and career track, assisting an unemployed father with food for his family, and keeping seniors independent.

Thanks for visiting. Take a moment to browse our services, discover how you can help your neighbors in need, and find opportunities to join us in our work.

We are grateful for your interest and support.
