The Lt. Col. Matt Urban Human Services Center (known to most as the Matt Urban Center), a human services organization that has served the East Side of Buffalo for over 40 years, is pleased to announce the appointment of Ryan Undercoffer as its new Executive Director.
Join us at our new Hope Center location at 243 Sears Street at Hope House. We’ll be tabling with many community partners from 3:00 – 6:00pm with our clothing boutique and essentials pantry open as well.
It has taken us a moment to cross all our tees and dot our I’s, but results are finally in and we really are so grateful for the support of this year’s Park Club Classic. You helped raise $26,546!
It was a resounding success and we didn’t let the rain drag us down! Whether donating time as a volunteer, donating a basket or auction item, purchasing tickets, bidding at the auction, golfing, or sponsoring the event – this would not have been a success without each person involved.
