Matt Urban Center

2017 By the Numbers

The Matt Urban Center has been proudly serving East Buffalo, the Town of Cheektowaga and West Seneca for the past 40 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.

For the past 17  years it has been my privilege to serve at the Matt Urban Center’s Executive Director. It has been a time of tremendous growth and opportunity and our staff work every day to help people onto their path of prosperity.

Sincerely,

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