JUNIOR LEAGUE OF BUFFALO GRANT— The Junior League of Buffalo has awarded a Community Assistance Small Grant in the amount of $7,000 to the Family Justice Center of Erie County.

The Junior League of Buffalo Community Assistance Small Grant program supports nonprofit organizations that are directly engaged in Western New York, addressing a demonstrated need in the community, have the potential to impact a significant number of community members, and will contribute in a substantial way to the quality of life in Western New York.

The Small Grants program awarded the grant to the Family Justice Center’s project that will directly engage and support the Junior League of Buffalo’s Community Impact focus area.

The purpose and mission of the Family Justice Center is to deliver comprehensive client services by its staff and partners to address offender accountability, safety, healing and prevention to enable clients and their children to break the cycle and live free from domestic violence, with more promise and hope for a successful future.

The $7,000 grant will be used to repair, remodel and restock the children’s play area in the Family Justice Center’s downtown location. The hope is to create a safe, stimulating environment for all children who visit the center. Last year, the Family Justice Center of Erie County saw more than 2,000 clients. Approximately 80 percent of those clients had children with them.
