Neighborhood Partners

Daemen College is proud of the partnerships it has developed and sustained over the last decade, specifically within three local disadvantaged neighborhoods: Seneca Babcock, the West Side, and Broadway Fillmore. Each of these partnerships aims to address a variety of social, educational, economic, and environmental problems that create barriers to a neighborhood’s sustainability, and future growth and development. Through the service learning program, Daemen students provide after-school tutoring and mentoring in computers, English, math, and reading, as well as recreational programs for the hundreds of youth in these low-income communities. Other service projects to benefit the residents of these neighborhoods have included: housing rehabilitation projects, summer reading camps, entrepreneurship training, neighborhood block club and community events (National Night Out, Teen Challenge), art, senior citizen, and athletic programs, assistance with tax preparation, health awareness clinics and workshops, and much needed support and services to veteran, refugee and international populations.
