COVID-19 and GLYS services

A message from our Executive Director, Robert Roush: We know there's too much news and info about this pandemic! Our services are being added as online services. Please check back or contact us at for details about how to sign on and join the online groups. The GLYS office and Drop in Center remain closed during this time. We will not re-open until the Buffalo schools re-open, or, in the event they do not re-open this academic year, we will re-open once the Governor allows gatherings again. We are still here for you! If the matter is urgent we can still meet in person one-on-one with parents or youth. Call us. Email us. We'll all get through this!
