King Center Programs The King Urban Life Center is a vital and dynamic community presence serving our community with programs that provide hope and inspiration to a group that has largely been forgotten. Always focusing on the needs of young children and their families, King Urban Life Center programs include the following: The Parent-Child Home Program (PCHP): A research-based, in-home, school readiness, early literacy program for families and toddlers. Technology Training for the Community: Since 2002, the King Urban Life Center has been offering Technology Training for the Community courses to children, young adults, families and seniors. There is an urgent need for computer literacy, and for participating members of this disadvantaged Buffalo community, these technology courses are their only opportunity to learn and master valuable computer skills that can have a significant impact on their daily lives. The program's partner is University at Buffalo’s Educational Opportunity Center (EOC). Saturday Royal Readers Program: A reading enrichment program that connects college students with community youth.; After School Music Programs: The King Center Chorus and The King Center Violinists; Summer youth activity programs.

Mission: The King Urban Life Center, Inc. is a national historic landmark that provides state-of- the-art facilities, in collaboration with community partners, to house and support educational, social, and cultural programs – including the King Center Charter School – for an underserved population. The King Center’s locally and nationally recognized educational programs serve as models for centers serving inner-city communities. The King Center is committed to its role as custodian of this historic building and its continued preservation, renovation, restoration, and sharing with the local, national, and international communities.

Robert J. Kresse, 93, who devoted much of his life to community service

Fondly remembering Robert Kresse today!❤️ Bob’s love and commitment to historic preservation was undeniably inspirational. Bob worked tirelessly to rescue the St Mary of Sorrows church from demolition in the 1980’s and became the driving force to restore the building and bring purpose back to his childhood parish, now known as the King Urban Life Center. Bob saw the center as a beacon of hope for the children within the neighborhood and today that vision holds true. We are indebted to Bob—an agent of change and hope, and whose devotion to the King Urban Life Center shows us all what is possible when you have the courage to dream!🙌🏻

We send condolences to the entire Kresse family, especially his beloved wife MaryAnn Kresse, who has been by Bob’s side for 56 years, and has also generously devoted time and her expertise to the mission of KULC.

Kresse, whose outsized, civic-minded commitment to Buffalo over four decades was exemplified by his efforts on behalf of early child education, the East Side and preservation, died at 93.

In response to the growing need for PPE to help combat the spread of COVID-19 in our East Side neighborhoods, the King Urban Life Center is hosting a PPE giveaway, Monday, June 29, 2020 from 2:00pm-4:00pm!

With the resurgence of COVID-19 cases around the country we recognize there is an even greater need for PPE, before families gather for the 4th of July holiday.

Tables will be set up on the corners of Rich St. and Genesee St. for interested families to sign up for programs and receive PPE.
