"Grace House" Buffalo- 1932-1938 Bailey
NYS Certified Emergency Shelter
The 1932-1938 Bailey site is now a NYS Certified Emergency Shelter. This site is one of only 2 certified shelters in Erie County, and is the only certified site serving adult males. These houses are the first stop for any new client referred to Saving Grace. Given the current homeless crisis in Erie County, this site is projected to serve over 400 individuals annually. Each of these individuals receives direct shelter care, case management, and linkage with necessary medical and mental health services.
Aftercare Housing is a transitional step for any SGM client stepping out of shelter care. The aftercare properties average a length of stay of approximately 6-12 months, with some exceptions being made for clients with an extensive background that does not allow them to be served elsewhere. These sites are a step toward independent living, while also providing clients with support and case management when necessary. Saving Grace provides aftercare housing at the following properties:
1902 Bailey Ave
1905 Bailey Ave
1909 Bailey Ave
1918 Bailey Ave
1920 Bailey Ave
2104 Bailey Ave
