On October 7, after years of hard work and planning, PPCWNY was proud to participate in the unveiling of Niagara Falls’ newest mural, Now’s the Time, on our building at The Connection! This beautiful piece was created by famed Western New York artist Chuck Tingley. Speakers at the event included our very own Shayla B. (Senior Manager of Outreach and Education), Chris S. (VP of Programs), and Ray C. (Health Education & Outreach Supervisor at The Connection). The mural centers around youth activism and is part of the NF Murals project.

Health Center Updates
Time flies -- Buffalo staff have been at the new health center/admin offices on East Amherst Street for over a year now! To mark the new site’s first anniversary, we wanted to share some pictures of the space and announce that the expanded Buffalo health center has increased PPCWNY’s capacity to provide family planning services by 18%!
The Brighton Town Planning Board approved the project plan for our new health center in Brighton last month! This new clinic will have double the family planning space of our former Greece location. A sneak peek of what the site will look like is in an artistic rendering above. We will keep you updated as this project moves forward.
