HOPE Buffalo is the community-wide movement for optimal teen health and wellbeing—a youth and community-led collaborative of diverse stakeholders, teens and adults working together to reduce teen pregnancy and STI rates and increase optimal teen health.
Optimal teen health means ensuring youth have a dynamic balance of physical, emotional, social, spiritual, and intellectual health, and have access to comprehensive sexuality education and reproductive health services, as well as mentoring and workforce development programs.
HOPE Buffalo values Health, Opportunity, Prevention and Education for teens. We respect their right to grow into the adults they want to be, to make their own decisions and set their own goals about their health and future.
The Community Action Team (CAT) is a group of local Buffalo community influencers, highly respected Buffalo community members and community-based organizations, working together to make a difference in the lives of Buffalo’s youth.
