More than $2.6M committed to Daybreak one-stop center opening in fall

A press conference to announce the launch of a capital campaign to support Heart, Love & Soul (HLS) and its planned Daybreak program will take place on Friday at 939 Ontario Ave., Niagara Falls.

HLS plans to begin renovating the site of the Daybreak program at 924 Niagara Ave., directly behind Heart & Soul’s current building, in May. The new facility is expected to open in the fall.

Daybreak will build upon current HLS services – including a food pantry, daily meal service, case management and care coordination – by providing additional basic services and dedicated space for partner agencies to deliver client services directly onsite.

“We are excited to move forward on this needed initiative that is the result of years of planning by many service agencies in the Niagara Falls community,” said Sr. Beth Brosmer, executive director of HLS. “By bringing a variety of services together in one accessible location, we can improve the effectiveness of our efforts and make a greater collective impact on our community and individuals in need.”

The new center will offer shower and laundry facilities, a multipurpose community room, computer lab, additional space for case management and care coordination, a reflection room, and offices for partner agencies to deliver a variety of services on a rotating basis. Clients will be able to access services for housing, health and wellness, behavioral health, employment and training, education, financial literacy and legal support.

The press conference will launch the public phase of a $3.5 million capital campaign to fund construction, startup and operating costs, and an investment fund to ensure long-term sustainability. HLS has raised more than $2.6 million to date.
