1522 Main Street in Niagara Falls
In case you have no idea what I'm talking about, here's a little background: The American Red Cross in Erie & Niagara Counties officially merged operations back on July 1, 2011. When that happened, it was determined to no longer be feasible to maintain two large office spaces in Niagara County in addition to our administrative headquarters here in Buffalo. So the previous offices on Davison Road in Lockport and Sawyer Drive in Wheatfield are being sold (if you're looking for a large office space in Niagara County, do we have a deal for you!!), and we recently consolidated our staff to one location in Niagara Falls.
The biggest advantage to this new office is it's location. By being located in the population center in Niagara Falls, we are closer to the majority of our clients, many of whom are able to walk to the new location for services. Of course, if someone on the other side of the county needs services, we'll make sure we can accommodate them as well. Once clients do arrive, our new office allows us to offer them additional services. The Red Cross is just one of six community service organizations sharing space inside Family & Children's Service of Niagara's newly renovated building at 1522 Main Street. So it is easy for us to, say, refer a client to Ways to Work Niagara for employment assistance, or for the Girl Scouts to come across the hall and sign up for one of our First Aid classes.
