Resource can depend on how low the income and the circumstances.

If the family recieves DHS they can get a furniture referral to Hope Intiatives(585-697-0407
Also Asbury Church on East Avenue (585-473-0950) takes referrals from social agencies, churches, and health care providers for families, but they provide smaller household items, dishes, towels, linens etc...

The best way to get free furniture is to check out Craigs List ( under the For Sale header, click on Free and they always have free furniture! Families can also post what they need. I've used all these for families and sometimes a combination of all three to get a family situated. I hope this helps!

Southwest Safety Net - Notes from 8/31/2012 Meeting


8 Members were present: Mike Brooks, Alonzo Henry, Val Ingram, Time Weider, Marilyn Gist, Sandy Migliori, Karla Boyce, Officer Joseph Travato, Amy Britto, Makimba Smithies

Officer Travato gave a brief overview of procedure with Juveniles and interaction with the police. The juvenile contact form was discussed.

Gang Database was discussed. Sandy Migliorr asked about gang affilitions- and how does someone make the gang affiliation list?  Officer Travato said 3 things: Admitting, documentation (flagging) associated with known members of a gang (having been FIF’d previously).

Officer Joe dealt mostly in the Sector 4 area or what was the Genesee Section at one time. He dealt mostly with Sex Offenders and Drug Houses. He added that he would talk to his collegues about their concerns with youth in the area.

Mike Brooks stressed the importance of not giving out too much information (e.g., Do not put in specific information in the form of an e-mail).

There was a discussion about the New York Works orientation.  Some of the members were concerned about the facilitator. Need to get clarification on what RochesterWorks does and how that relates to what others provide.

Questions to be addressed:

  • What can the Safety Net members do to prepare the youth to be more job ready or at least more ready to attend the orientation if that is what is required?
  • What is the state of the working environment for 14-21 year-olds?

Tim said he would contact John Premo and ask for the information.
