The Matt Urban Center’s Housing & Community Development department is thrilled to share that we have renovated and sold three properties in the Broadway Fillmore and South Buffalo communities to low-income first-time homebuyers!
One of the properties, located at 933 Fillmore Avenue, was owned by a couple who no longer live in the neighborhood. It had been their dream to fix up the house, but unfortunately they did not have the resources. They originally purchased the home for $18,000, but they decided to sell it to the Matt Urban Center for $1.00 so that it could be renovated and once again become an asset to the neighborhood.

Last year was a very busy, hectic and productive year for the Matt Urban Center. We were able to work on many amazing projects including completed construction on our HELP Buffalo II Apartments and expanded youth programming in City of Buffalo schools. As we enter 2018, we look forward to expanding on our successes and growing even more with the community. We will be starting a full rehabilitation and renovation of former PS 57 to add 27 units of affordable housing for women and children and greatly expand on the services currently being offered at our Hope Center. We are also reinvesting $3 million in the renovation of our Lewis Street T.J. Wojnar Apartments to improve accessibility, technologies and other amenities for our seniors. Whether it is providing advocacy and support for innocent victims of crime, serving hot meals to area residents at our Urban Diner, or increasing our after school programming for at risk neighborhood youth, we are continually looking for successful programs and strategies to assist the community in becoming self-sustaining. We look forward to the year ahead and hope you enjoy our revamped website. Stay tuned for more updates on Matt Urban Center programs, news and events!
Here’s to a happy, healthy, safe and affordable 2018!
