#DFSBuffalo Recovery Phase

Over the past 4 months, DFS Buffalo was forced to pivot and work with our clients virtually. Not only were we dealing with the pandemic, we made the decision to temporarily board up our space during this time of civil unrest. It has been a challenging time financially for our organization.

We are on the road to recovery.

I look forward to the day we can service, connect and HUG our clients in person.
