    North Buffalo Neighbors

    North Buffalo Neighbors grew out of an “Aging in Community” initiative begun by the Parkside Community Association and funded in part by the Community Health Foundation of Western and Central New York. The goal was to make it easy for Parkside seniors to live confidently and comfortably in their own homes. We named ourselves Flint Hill Village in honor of the War of 1812 Flint Hill encampment in what is now Delaware Park. During our start up phase as Flint Hill Village, we used some of our funds to provide smoke and carbon monoxide detectors for senior residents of Parkside.

    Our group also provided the community with informational meetings on topics such as Erie County Senior Services’ programs, recent changes in New York State health care proxy and Power of Attorney laws, assisted living options in Western New York, and home modifications. In addition, we are members of the Falls Prevention Collaborative and provide literature and speakers to help individuals reduce the risk of falling in the home. We now have decided to expand our borders beyond Parkside to a wider area of North Buffalo.


     

    This program is sponsored by the Parkside Community Association, one of Buffalo's oldest incorporated neighborhood associations. All money raised helps support continuing non-profit programs of the Parkside Community Association—among them are the Summer Arts Camp for kids, Aging in Place, Crime Prevention, Housing Advocacy, Arts and Crafts Show, Traffic Safety, the renowned Parkside Tour of Homes and Garden & Architecture Tour, and the popular free summer “Movies in the Meadow” series.

    Please consider supporting the Parkside Community Association with an additional donation to our Annual Appeal. Your support allows us to continue working on behalf of the Parkside community through our many special events and programs – Donate Here: http://parksidebuffalo.org/Donate
