144th District Assemblyman Michael J. Norris recently visited the Lockport CARES emergency homeless shelter campus located at 188-192 Genesee St.
Dr. Chandrashaker Gona, M.D., and his wife, Dr. Jayakumari Gona, were honored for their dedication to Lockport CARES and the community. They received a New York State Assembly citation that read, in part, "Resolved: Dr. Chandrashaker Gona, M.D., and his wife, Dr. Jayakumari Gona, are outstanding citizens that are worthy of the esteem of both the community and the great state of New York, and upon this occasion we join in saluting Drs. Gona in recognition of their dedication to Lockport CARES and our entire community. "
Norris, who is a Lockport resident, toured the current operating homeless shelter at 188 Genesee St. He also visited the CARES campus and the ongoing remodeling at 192 Genesee St. That building will soon house the living well day program for woman, which is a partnership between CARE Net Pregnancy Center and Lockport CARES. The long-term goal is to reopen this building with an additional 11 beds for the homeless. The agency said more volunteers are needed to make this possible.
