Poverty in our neighborhood

Our neighborhood has many needs that we serve. The immediate

which is less than half of the next lowest median income of any zip code in Erie County, state average is over $55,702.


Neighbors on our street include,  Erie City Mission, Mental Health Association, The Upper Room Homeless Shelter, Gaudenzia Outpatient Rehabilitation Center, New Directions Health Care (a methadone clinic), and possibly most important, the McDonald's next door.  All of those resources are within a five block stretch that we've placed ourselves in the middle of to be a service to all people.
