This is URGENT: Please let our public officials know how important our city’s Hostel is and that we should work together to obtain our building!
As a successful not-for-profit entering our 3rd decade, we are facing jeopardy with the entire building being put on the market–we only occupy the front portion–and proposals–including our own–have been submitted. We need the city to work with us so that the 4 years left on our lease are not our last. We are a vital part of our beloved Theatre District, our city, our Local Arts & Humanitarian Communities, and to the entire WNY region. We are the vibrant welcoming gateway for thousands of travelers–young and old–from all over the world to the city of Good Neighbors, open 365 days a year, we want to continue our mission forever not just the next 4 years!

Our community is what makes us and we need our community to be heard.
Spread the Word That This Place Matters!
