Savarino Companies is the General Contractor for a transitional housing and community center on Buffalo's East Side.

The $13,000,000 project, which is sponsored by the Lt. Col. Matt Urban Center, involves the adaptive reuse of the former Buffalo Public School #57 on Sears Street. Current plans include 32 single bed units and 42 shelter beds as well as a community clothing distribution center, day care, medical and dental offices and a community kitchen and warming center. The project requires the historic restoration of the 3 story former school and attached auditorium and the construction of additional site amenities.

The project is currently in the pre-construction phase with a ground breaking anticipated in late 2016.
