Homespace Corporation announced grant funding received to enhance its Second Chance Home and Supervised Independent Living Program (SILP) facilities, both of which are located in the East Side district of Buffalo. “As an organization that provides residential living as a part of its service offerings, Homespace is always thrilled to receive grant funds to improve our buildings on campus,” said Michael Hill, executive director of the nonprofit agency. “Our youth deserve an environment that promotes safety, security, and comfort. We want our spaces to feel pleasant and home-like for them.” Local foundations have provided awards that will facilitate the installation of new front doors at our SILP townhomes and upgrades to our existing security systems at Second Chance Home. Last month, the East Hill Foundation contributed $23,911. Also, the Peter & Elizabeth Tower Foundation contributed $6,500.
