FamilyWorks Buffalo is an enrichment, leadership, and relationship-building program for parents, children, and families affected by incarceration in Western New York. We provide a safe, fun, and supportive environment for families that want to enjoy community with others who share similar experiences.

FamilyWorks Buffalo offers:

  • Family recreational activities. 
  • Youth leadership development groups. 
  • Education, training, and support for organizations and programs about the experiences and needs of children with incarcerated parents. 
  • Osborne’s free Video Visiting will allow children and family members to visit with incarcerated people by video from Osborne’s Buffalo site to eight New York State prisons.
