HOPE Buffalo is the communitywide pledge for teen health and wellness. We are a youth and community-led movement wherein organizations and individuals work together to prioritize activities that promote lifelong health, including making sure young people have access to the information and care they need to make healthy decisions about their reproductive health.
We believe that teens have the right to grow into the adults they want to be—whatever that means for them. We respect their right to make their own decisions and set their own goals about their health and future. And we will support them with an open door, an open ear, an open mind, and an open heart.
The Community Action Team (CAT) is a group of local Buffalo community influencers, highly respected Buffalo community members and community-based organizations, working together to make a difference in the lives of Buffalo’s youth.
