With only a few days left in our App Giveback contest, we’re kicking it into high gear and finishing up the week with more nonprofit profiles. Today, take a look at two of our finalists, HOME and Southeast Works.

HOME (Housing Opportunities Made Equal) is a nonprofit organization that promotes the value of diversity and ensures Western New Yorkers get an equal opportunity to live in the housing and communities of their choice through education, advocacy, enforcement of fair housing laws, and creation of housing opportunities.

Programs at HOME include fair housing presentations, mobility counseling, assistance to victims of discrimination, landlord training, and more. HOME‘s Community Housing Center also helps renters find new homes.

HOME has recently relocated to its current headquarters at 1542 Main Street in Buffalo. Participation in HOME programs is free and confidential.

Southeast Works provides services to help those with developmental disabilities lead productive, independent, and fulfilling lives. With their staff of over 200 people, Southeast Works provides programs such as supported employment, pre-vocational services and workshops, medicaid service coordination, recreation, transportation, and more.

Southeast Works currently provides transportation to over 250 people on a daily basis, and over 450 individuals from the Western New York community participate in one or more of Southeast’s programs.

The organization started in 1974 as a way to provide community-based and family-oriented care to institutionalized disabled adults, and has since grown to provide assistance to developmentally disabled adults in need. Southeast Works is located on 181 Lincoln Street in Depew.
