Little Portion homeless shelter marks 40 years of helping those in need

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — A homeless shelter in Buffalo is celebrating 40 years of serving the community.

The Little Portion Friary homeless shelter opened its doors back in 1982 when Deacon John and Reverand Alexius began offering services to care for those who needed a warm place to stay. The shelter continues to provide meals and counseling services to those in need.

The Friary is also looking for volunteers to help out, as the number of workers has dropped since the beginning of the pandemic.

I am new in Town know nothing about the city are y’all a homeless shelter I am in need of a shelter I come from a small town in Tennessee so I’m looking for a smaller shelter than that of city Mission

I am a homeless veteran, found help at Veterans center at 1325 Main St. The VA Rep went out of her way and referred me to Little Portions right next door. After being interviewed, I was very impressed with the staff, building cleanliness, and services offered. Clean showers, delicious dinner meals,clean bedding. I am very grateful for their assistance, these are volunteers who go out of their way to help total strangers. Thank you, Ken
