"On September 11th 2001, New York City, the most diverse City in the world was viciously attacked in an unprovoked act of war. More than five thousand innocent men, women, and children of every race, religion, and ethnicity are lost. Among these were people from 80 different nations. To their representatives here today, I offer my condolences to you as well on behalf of all New Yorkers who share this loss with you. This was the deadliest terrorist attack in history. It claimed more lives than Pearl Harbor or D-Day." -Rudy Giuliani, Mayor of NYC 1994-2001

TLDR: we're expecting a surge of incoming families at Vive and we need your help!

Due to the ongoing situation at the Southern border and the fact that we have been sustaining pre-pandemic numbers at our #ViveShelter for a little while, we are anticipating a potential major surge in arrivals soon. Read on for more detailed ways you can help: purchasing items off our Amazon shopping list (bit.ly/ViveList19), preparing to volunteer, or making a financial investment.

We have been seeing steadily increasing numbers at Vive, especially of families with children. In the past, we have faced several major influxes, which have required an increase in staffing; material goods like bedding, diapers, and toiletries; food; and more. With COVID-19 still being a real concern, our surge plans must accommodate for that too.

We're hopeful that by preparing early for an oncoming surge, we will be better equipped to support newly arriving families and make them feel safe, welcome, and wanted. Though Vive is a waystation en route to a better life, we always want it to feel like a refuge.

WAYS YOU CAN HELP VIVE PREPARE FOR A SURGE

1. Purchase items off our shopping list (either directly from bit.ly/ViveList19 or ship/drop off items to 50 Wyoming Ave, Buffalo, NY 14215). We are currently collecting:
- Twin bedding (sheets & blankets)
- Pillows & pillowcases
- Toiletries (shampoo & conditioner, especially for African/Black hair, bar soap & body wash, body & face lotion, deodorant, toothbrushes & toothpaste, Vaseline)
- Towels
- New, unopened packages of undies and socks (adults' and children's)
- Prepackaged snacks (especially for kids)
- Diapers & baby wipes

2. Prepare to volunteer! We'd love to have a roster of people who have already completed our volunteer application and worked through the onboarding process so they can start helping out immediately if a surge happens. Apply at jrchc.org/volunteer/apply. (All volunteers must be fully vaccinated against COVID.)

3. Make a financial investment in our work. Monetary gifts allow us the most flexibility, which is especially important when we don't know who to expect, when they'll arrive, and what special needs they may have. Donate at jrchc.org/donate or send a check to Jericho Road Community Health Center (with "Vive" in the memo line) to 184 Barton Street, Buffalo, NY 14213.

Lead Renovation, Repair and Painting Program | US EPA

We want to make everyone aware of the importance of doing home repair/remodeling of pre 1978 buildings in a Lead Safe way. Contractors, Landlords and Property Owners should be taking the one day EPA RRP course so as not to create lead hazards inside and outside of buildings. Scraping, sanding burning paint off buildings without plastic containment means lead dust/paint chips left on floors/ground that are hazards to children and pets! Blowing chips/dust into storm drains creates water hazards. Lack of PPE means workers not only being exposed but in some cases they bring lead dust home on their clothes and have unintentionally poisoned their children/grandchildren! More info on EPA Lead Safety Rule at

This page describes RRP rule requirements for contractors, do-it-yourselfers, training providers, child-occupied facilities, property managers, consumers, and links to materials and downloads.

There is no safe level of lead in the body. Lead can harm anyone, but babies, young children and pregnant women are at special risk. A child with lead poisoning doesn’t look or act sick, but lead can cause serious health problems. Learn more about how to have a healthy home for your child's healthy development

Buffalo is renovating more than ever before. That means it’s time for all of us—each landlord, tenant, and homeowner—to help make our community lead-safe.

Rental Registration | Buffalo, NY

We cannot protect the health and well-being of our children without the cooperation of property owners in providing safe, livable, adequate housing that does not threaten the livelihood of the families who reside there. Just as we hold restaurants to basic health and safety standards, housing providers should be ensuring homes are well-maintained so that children have the chance to thrive and reach their full potential, not be robbed of a bright future due to avoidable exposure to lead paint. Get Ahead of Lead

The Rental Registration Program was implemented in January 2005 to help identify problem properties and absentee landlords. It is used to assist code enforcement efforts to improve the quality of life for tenants and neighbors of rental dwellings.
