The Seneca-Babcock Community Association has received a $18,500 grant through a competitive application and review process from the General Mills Foundation. The SBCA will use these funds to support "Healthy Choices Healthy Kids," a program that helps promote healthy eating, increased physical activity, a positive outlook and awareness of good nutrition among youth.
The Seneca-Babcock Community Association is a nonprofit, multifaceted human service agency located in southeast Buffalo. The SBCA has been in the forefront of human development, working with citizens from disadvantaged economic, social and family circumstances in and around the Seneca-Babcock Community since May of 1975.
The youth who live in the Seneca-Babcock Community come from homes with very difficult and profound problems - parent alcohol and drug abuse, family violence and unproductive parenting. Many of the youth are uncared for, poorly dressed and malnourished. To learn more, visit http://www.senecababcock.com
