The Little Portion Friary

Address
1305 Main St
Buffalo, NY - 14209

The Mission of Little Portion Friary is to journey with the homeless, providing temporary shelter, meals, and counseling during their struggle to acquire permanent housing and jobs.

We provided a home to 19 men and 10 women.
The average length of stay at Little Portion Friary is dependent on a guest’s needs.

Admission
Each guest is interviewed by a volunteer and asked a variety of questions regarding past issues as well as future concerns. This interview determines the eligibility of a guest. An individual must be homeless; at least 18 years of age; 24 hours free of drugs and alcohol; have no sexual offense record; be capable of doing chores and be able to follow house rules. The guests must be able to be out of the house daily from 9 am to 4 pm, and they must return no later than 10:30 pm. The guests must be linked with services, as directed or referred to by a counselor. Phone referrals can be taken providing there is an open bed, but Little Portion Friary (LPF) does not have a waiting list. Since a guests stay is day-to-day if the house is full when first contacted, homeless individuals are requested to call back daily to inquire about availability

Resources
Depending on a guests situation he or she may be required to attend outside programs. For instance, a person with a prior or present history of drug and alcohol abuse must attend two to five AA/NA meetings per week depending on their length of sobriety and other programs they may be attending. Also, a person diagnosed with a mental illness must have guidance from a counselor and medications as required. LPF also has communication with the community. Once a week, an advocate from Social Services and health services comes to LPF to speak with any guest. Resources which benefit a guest.
