All 84 apartments will be affordable to households earning at or below 60 percent of the Area Median Income. Forty apartments will be reserved for seniors with a history of mental illness. These residents will have access to on-site supportive services, such as case management, benefits advocacy, financial management, job skills training and assistance with medical care.

The Vision. The Design.

Buffalo Federation of Neighborhood Centers (BFNC) is a community agency with over 125 years of serving the Buffalo community. BFNC has always been committed to providing programs and services that uplift and empower community members to create a pathway to their success. Our commitment to area seniors was a driving force for our vision to develop affordable and quality housing with a health care facility in the heart of Buffalo’s Eastside community.

The Westminster Settlement House, originally constructed in 1893, will be repurposed into a community service facility with health-oriented services for both residents and the community. Services will include a certified senior adult day care program, a medical clinic, a pharmacy, rehabilitative services and office space. There will be an interior link between the two buildings to facilitate ease of access for residents.
