BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Work kicked off Saturday on the Buffalo Dream Center’s new home. The program- which helps inner city families and the homeless-recently made a big move. They were kicked out of their downtown location last year after Ellicot Development bought two of their buildings.
The church- and all of its programs- will now live at a community center on the city’s west side. The charity has been in crisis ever since their headquarters was sold to Ellicot Development last June.
The organization’s pastor says the upper west side of buffalo has a lot of need. He says it has a lot of kids and a big refugee population. He adds the new building needs a lot of work before their move in day.
Pastor Eric Johns says, “It’s a lot of work-but we’ve never been afraid of doing work. We’ve had people from a lot of community groups and churches-and families. We’ve got a lot of hands making it work so that we can get in here.”
The Dream Center hopes to be up and running by their first Sunday service scheduled for May 10th.
