Permanent Supportive Housing Hosts Music and Mocktails Party

Our permanent supportive housing team recently created a positive social hour for their clients called “Music and Mocktails.” The event featured live music by local singer and musician Brian Beaudry, who is a member of several local bands including “Nerds Gone Wild.” Brian performs live music sets for nursing homes and residential sites all over Western New York.

Our clients from Housing First, Hope Gardens and HELP Buffalo attended the first Music and Mocktails event on December 4, 2019. They enjoyed appetizers, “mock tails”, and lots of singing and dancing. We’re looking forward to hosting more of these social events in the near future!

Representing MUC in Albany

Tasha Moore, our Community Health Worker at Hope Gardens, recently traveled to Albany to attend the statewide public hearing to evaluate the continuing unmet civil legal services needs in New York.

Tasha went to show support for our partners at Neighborhood Legal Services and gave powerful testimony to the need for adequate civil legal services. Tasha’s remarks share how critical those resources have been in her own life and to the clients she serves.
