West Side Promise Neighborhood

It’s time to get out, listen to the needs of the community and pitch in to make a difference!


Rich’s is right in the heart of Buffalo’s West Side Promise Neighborhood (WSPN), a unique public/private partnership committed to creating positive change for the diverse communities just outside our doors. The WSPN envisions a community where every family is strong, every child is healthy and every youth succeeds in school and achieves lifelong success.

We support the West Side Promise Neighborhood because it’s the embodiment of Rich’s promise to treat our community like family.

Looking to put our family values into action? It’s time to get out, listen to the needs of the community and pitch in to make a difference.

Mini-immersion Programs

Starting in late spring 2019, and running through the summer, several mini-immersions will be offered. A mini-immersion is a half-day walking tour of some of the WSPN partners and an opportunity to learn more about programs and services you may wish to engage in in the future.

In addition to half-day programs, Habitat for Humanity and Junior Achievement have full-day volunteering opportunities for individuals and groups throughout the spring and summer. Contact us below to learn more.
