Volunteers are needed at BFNC, Compeer and Schiller Park Senior Center!
Caregivers are family members or friends who typically provide unpaid, long-term,
community-based care and assistance to older adults and people with chronic
health conditions or disabilities.

A recent study conducted by the Rosalynn Carter Institute for Caregivers indicated.
that nearly 2 in 10 employed caregivers had to stop working, while 4 in 10 had to
reduce their working hours to care for a loved one.

When you volunteer, you’ll:
• Spend time and socialize with an older adult guest (participant)
• Participate in arts and crafts and other projects together
• Enjoy a free lunch with the group
• Ensure guest safely navigates to restrooms, and other spaces within the
building
• Assist with serving lunch and/or cleanup

Apply today through Hearts and Hands at: https://bit.ly/exhalevolunteer

While HPV vaccine is most effective when given to children ages 11 and 12, older teens and young adults can still benefit from the HPV vaccine - even if they are sexually active. The vaccine will protect them from the most common types of HPV. Everyone through age 26 years should get HPV vaccine if they were not fully vaccinated already.

*IMPORTANT TENANTS RIGHTS TRAINING ON JANUARY 26TH 2022*
Now that the eviction moratorium has ended, we know that many of our neighbors are wanting to know what they can do to protect their families and communities. In addition to fighting for housing rights law at the local, state and federal level, we've been working to advocate for tenants right here in our city.
Meg Z, our Legal Tenant Advocate and Felicia Cruz, our Healthy Homes Coordinator have put together a training for tenants who want to learn more about their rights now that the eviction moratorium has expired (and for folks that want to learn more about tenant rights following the lapse of the eviction moratorium). We know that tenants are scared and confused about how they can protect themselves (and they can!) which makes this a really a unique and critical training/opportunity.
This will be a hybrid event, with in person and online options to participate.
RSVP here -
To all Healthcare, Finance, Business and Philanthropy Leaders,

On behalf of the Buffalo Center for Health Equity in partnership with LISC WNY, Population Health Collaborative UB Community Health Equity Research Institute, and Live Well WNY, we invite you to our Building A Strategic Framework for Racial Equity discussion on Shifting the Narrative: ROI on Healthy Communities.
