It’s no secret that Buffalo is on the rise. Articles are being written about us, cranes can be seen in downtown Buffalo, people are moving back and there are economic development initiatives that have the ability to continue driving our city forward. To say it’s an exciting time to live in Buffalo would be an understatement.
With all of this happening, it’s important to remember that in order for a city to rise, its people and communities must rise with it. Currently there are a large number of Buffalonians living below the poverty line, working families who have to ask themselves how they will heat their homes this winter and put food on their tables. There is still a lot of work to be done.
