FAMILY PRESERVATION & SUPPORT
In keeping with our commitment to support, strengthen, and build families, the Buffalo Urban League focuses our programs on supporting individuals from birth through senior years. We recognize family as the critical foundation of all our work. Through our Preventive, Foster Care, Adoption, High Fidelity Wraparound Vendor Services, Seniors’ Multi-Service Center, and our Community Health Workers (CHW), we cover a wide array of services including, child abuse prevention, foster care and foster care prevention, adoption, family reunification, parent education, family counseling, health and wellness.
*In our Foster Care & Adoption programs, 100% of children who were eligible to be reunified with their parents, or were eligible for adoption, were successfully were reunited with their families or placed in permanent homes.
*253 children at risk of foster care in our Preventive Services program were safely maintained in their homes, averting foster care placement.
*98% of seniors, ages 75 and older, who received services at our Seniors’ Multi-Service Center continued living independently in their homes in the community.
*Our CHW Program, established itself as a trailblazing program, impacted 4,945 lives in the clinics of the Catholic Health System.
