What’s New:

November has been another wonderful month filled with building connections across the region.  We had the opportunity to meet with Naomi Taylor from The Renewal Center and Tim Martin from the Harvest House New Hope Educational Center, two organizations that are doing so much for the Buffalo, NY community. Thank you both for showing us around your facilities and describing all of the outreach you provide. We are looking forward to working together in the future.

We attended the Joining Community Forces (JFC) Coalition quarterly meeting at the Veterans Affairs Western NY Hospital. The JCF Coalition is a group of professionals who are committed to serving local military families and veterans. Western NY is very fortunate to have such dedicated professionals assisting our veterans. Thank you!

The 2019 NYCPG Annual Conference in Albany, NY brought together people dedicated to learning about and helping those impacted by problem gambling in New York State and beyond! It was a wonderful three days of learning and networking.  Again, thank you for all who attended from the Western Region.

Are you a private practice clinician who is interested in helping those negatively impacted by problem gambling? We would like to expand our clinical network in the Jamestown, Southern Erie County, and Batavia areas. If you or someone you know are interested, contact us today to learn more!
