In Difficult Times #OurWorkContinues
The COVID-19 pandemic abruptly changed our daily lives and forced us to change the way we do things, in order to keep moving forward.
The Matt Urban Center staff and the clients we serve are no exception and, like many, we are doing the best we can to keep moving forward in this new normal. We provide essential services to people in need, so closing our doors has never been an option.
Our staff are resilient and determined. They adapt and they respond. Simply put, OUR WORK CONTINUES.

COVID-19 Program Updates
As a result of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, our agency has had to make some temporary changes to our programs and procedures.
Please click here for updates from each of our sites and programs on how they will be functioning in the interim. We will continue to send updates as things change.
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.
