2018 By the Numbers

The Matt Urban Center has been proudly serving East Buffalo, the Town of Cheektowaga and West Seneca for the past 42 years. We continue to fulfill our mission of revitalizing neighborhoods, serve families and change lives by bringing together public and private resources in an effort to assist community residents in becoming self-sustaining. 

As we continue into 2019, we are excited to be writing the next chapter of our agency’s story with our largest community development project to date. Construction progresses as we return the former Public School 57 back to a community asset as a multipurpose facility. The Building Hope Capital Campaign will help us bring our newly renovated “Hope House” across the finish line and ensure we are able to continue housing families and providing essential services to our neighbors. 

Stay tuned for more updates and we hope you’ll explore and learn more about our project and campaign.

With gratitude,

Marlies Wesolowski, Executive Director
Lt. Col. Matt Urban Human Services Center of WNY
