We invite your loved ones to experience “The Gathering Place” Senior Respite Program. This program is designed to provide fun and uplifting activities created for seniors and offers much needed help for their caregivers. If you need a break, or just need to run errands during the day, or simply take a moment to yourself on Saturday mornings. Older adults can enjoy fun activities and time with others in a safe environment:
  • For older adults age 55+
  • A FREE PROGRAM – No cost to participate
  • 4 hours of planned fun activities designed for seniors
  • Convenient locations in Buffalo: the BFNC Life Center @ Westminster Community House, the Schiller Park Senior Center, and Compeer of Greater Buffalo.
The Gathering Place is currently open for services at BFNC's Life Center in the Westminster Community House, located at 419 Monroe Street in Buffalo, NY. For more information, please call the Life Center at 716-852-5065 ext. 132. Learn more about The Gathering Place here.


Our Senior Services were birthed out of the need to fill a gap for retired seniors who desired a program to keep active and contribute to the community. The initial Home of our Senior Programming was the Moot Senior Center located on High Street in the heart of Buffalo’s Fruit Belt community. The founding seniors affectionately referred to themselves as “Mooters.”



The Vision to Offer Uplifting Community Programming Remains

The BFNC Moot Center offers an array of social, cultural, health and wellness opportunities to strengthen the lives of community members residing in Buffalo, NY. The Moot Center is known as a community venue. Each fall, BFNC hosts an annual Community Thanksgiving Dinner and Brunch with Santa.


Community & Event Rental

The Moot Center features a newly expanded meeting and activity space redesigned to provide users the opportunity to engage and educate in a safe and welcoming environment. We accommodate meetings, birthday parties, baby & bridal showers, banquets, wedding receptions and church services or programs.
