Project Noah

Project Noah is what we are calling our main building roof replacement. After 25 + years of Buffalo NY weather, our roof started to show signs of stress and leakage. We had to replace a smaller section last year as part of our Matthew 25 project to get our basement from flooding. Of course, when it rains it pours, lo and behold our main roof started leaking just as we were wrapping up our basement project. But God provides and he will again. A special thank you to all our supporters who have stepped up again and an appeal to anyone who might help us, as this is an unexpected expense but urgently needed to keep our mission dry, safe, and welcoming for all.

Buffalo Rehab Donation

Last week we had a visit/inspection by FeedMoreWNY as some grant money was put towards a new oven we needed. While Amber Thiel from FeedMoreWNY was here and impressed with the new kitchen and facility she had mentioned that Buffalo Rehab was looking for a way to help the community. She asked if we would be interested in some pre-made meals from a local Food Market, Wegman’s 2GO prepared specially made meals for us and was sponsored by Buffalo Rehab.

Of course, we were very interested and followed up with Wegman’s and Buffalo Rehab. They supplied 220 premade meals this week allowing for our kitchen staff to take a bit of a well-deserved break.

We have been so blessed by the local community, parishes, companies, and individuals. We are in the final stages of our “re-opening” and are looking forward to welcoming our community and friends back in the building, in the meantime with the help of Buffalo Rehab and Wegman’s we can offer delicious meals to all our friends that visit us daily.
