Catholic Charities, Partners Embark on Caregiver Initiative Designed to Cover Seven Counties

Catholic Charities of Buffalo and its eight partners are mobilizing for a January 1 start for the comprehensive Alzheimer’s Disease Caregiver Support Initiative, the result of a $7.5 million award announced recently by New York State Governor Andrew M. Cuomo.

Through the five-year grant, a focused, collaborative service network is being developed to support and impact caregivers of loved ones with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementia across seven counties in Western New York.  The goal is to expand the safety net for caregivers by recognizing and addressing the need for supports and stress reduction strategies.

"The American Side" Made in Buffalo!

"The American Side" Made in Buffalo!

This is a classic film noir private detective story with participants fighting over plans of a Nikola Tesla invention that was separated by Tesla into two parts so it could not be built without having both halves. Scenes were shot at the Grain Elevators, many locations around Buffalo, on the Steam Engines at the Col. Ward, Niagara Falls and even the Lockport Locks and caves. They are working on releasing the film in the Spring. It's a fun, tense detective movie definitely worth seeing especially if your from WNY. This movie is a great boost for Buffalo...

Since 1889, four generations of the Coulter family have worked on and loved this land, growing strawberries, sweet corn, tomatoes, sweet cherries, peaches, melons and more. 

Dave’s father, Jim Coulter, ran the farm from 1978 until he passed away in 2009. Jim was a beloved farmer and businessman in Niagara County.
