HOME sent along updated renderings for the non-profit's Main-Ferry project that more accurately depict how the finished project will look. With the aid of architect Charlie Gordon and general contractor Paul Lamparelli, HOME is building energy efficient barrier-free housing for ten families, more accessible offices for clients who turn to the organization for help from all parts of the region, and a building which will grace the intersection Main and Ferry for the next 100 years.
The most recent project budget totals nearly $2.9 million. Of that sum $2,374,134 represents government support--from the State of New York ($1,682,134), the City of Buffalo ($495,000) and the Federal Home Loan Bank of New York ($197,500, through M&T Bank and First Niagara Bank). The balance of the project has been supported by private philanthropy from the Margaret L. Wendt Foundation, the Mulroy Family Foundation, the M&T Foundation, the Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo, the Western New York Foundation and more than 75 individual donors.
HOME still has to raise about $99,000 or 3 percent of the project's cost. Information on how to get involved can be obtained from Associate Director Shannon Koehn at 716.854.1400 ext 17 or email@example.com
