Through multiple National Service opportunities, our agency provides needed programmatic support to over 100 community partners. TSC operates the AmeriCorps ABLE Program and The Serve New York AmeriCorps VISTA program in addition to the WNY YouthBuild program and Volunteer WNY.

Mission: The Service Collaborative of WNY, an independent non-profit organization, creates opportunities for all individuals to serve, challenging citizens to turn their ideals into action and their passion into positive change. Through transformational service and civic responsibility, The Service Collaborative of WNY is designing a sustainable future for our nation’s communities.

Mission Accomplished! The #Beds4Buffalo initiative was very busy this week distributing 45 twin beds to our community partners that will directly impact children in-need. Each bed is equipped with bed hardware that allows for easy assembly (no tools required) and transport. In addition, each child
receives a brand new mattress, pillow, comforter, bed sheets and more! We thank all of our partners and volunteers for their continued support. #Teamup

We are happy to announce two of our newest TSC staff members, Quin and Jake! They are working with our Economic Opportunity Corps (EOC) AmeriCorps program.

As the EOC Director, Jake is excited for the opportunity to serve the program. For the past two years, he was at Catholic Charities of Buffalo; first, serving as an EOC member (then called the Economic Development Corps), and then working as the lead Homelessness Prevention case manager.

In her position as the EOC Program Manager, Quin is excited to be working and learning with all of the EOC members. Born and raised in Buffalo, Quin previously studied at the University of Buffalo where she earned her Master’s in Global Gender Studies.

TCS is thrilled to welcome Quin and Jake!
