The King Urban Life Center building began as St. Mary of Sorrows Roman Catholic Church at the turn of the century. It served as a spiritual haven to the community for over 100 years, but in the 1980s, the neighborhood had seen a steady pattern of decay and destruction and plans for demolition started to be developed.
The King Urban Life Center funded a pilot project for intervention in four classrooms at Buffalo Public School (BPS) 90 to see what it would take to provide holistic care for the students and what the educational impact of that holistic care would be on the students and their families. This was collaboration between Houghton, Buffalo State and University at Buffalo.
We are looking for a Development Director. Check out the KULC Opportunities tab for more information.
