ECMC has presented a donation of $8,673 to Harvest House and Good Neighbors Health Care, which they accepted gleefully. The check was presented to the founders of
Harvest House, Gary and Linda Tatu, by ECMC Board of Director Chair Sharon L.
Hanson and CEO Jody L. Lomeo.
was 16 years ago that the Tatus chose to purchase the former South Presbyterian
church and Sunday school building at 1782 Seneca Street in Buffalo, following with renovations that transformed into a Baby and Children’s Ministry and Christian Retreat Center. Today these
buildings are now known as Harvest House.
the years after the start up of Harvest House, the Tatus purchased an additional
Neighbors Health Care. Originally the Center was used as a medical facility to
assist those without insurance. The mission statement of the facility was and
still is “to help serve the people in an underserved community with all of the
services that could help them build a better life,” but has expanded to offer
computer and educational classes and legal advice.
donation from ECMC will serve to help Good Neighbors Health Care to expand
their services even further to include mental health, physical and
occupational care, and exercise classes.
