Mission Statement

Our organization was created to provide support and assistance to WNY families and individuals on a close and personal level during times of medical, accidental, and economic hardship. We will also be supporting other 501c3 organizations that are doing quality work in the community.

The TRUE meaning of life and the TRUE meaning of happiness is what you give to others, NOT what you take for yourself.
