Our 2020 Annual Report Is Here
This agency experienced a tremendous degree of organizational disruption and transition in 2020. This upheaval occurred while in the midst of a public health emergency. The staff and leadership of this organization are a testament to the human capacity to persevere in the face of difficult odds and maintain empathy and compassion while doing so.
Read how, in 2020, our program directors and their staff adjusted, evolved, and found a way to deliver the critical services they provide to the community, despite many restrictions and while ensuring the safety of themselves and their clients.
The Matt Urban Center has been proudly serving East Buffalo, the Town of Cheektowaga and West Seneca for the past 45 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.
Our Commitment to Racial Justice
The Matt Urban Center is committed to promoting racial equity and acknowledges historical systems of oppression including institutional and systemic racism which continue to this day. The Matt Urban Center will take active steps in addressing racial inequity as an organization and as it relates to the community we serve through training, stakeholder engagement, self-assessment, advocacy and intentional policy making. The Matt Urban Center recognizes that not actively combatting racism is equal to complicity.
