The Greater Buffalo United Community Based Organization’s sole purpose is to protect and enhance the abilities of nonprofit health care organizations and serve society and their individual communities.
Through research, public education, and advocacy, our organization seeks to provide a strong, cohesive and persistent “voice” for this nonprofit health care organization’s common goals, communication barriers with providers, and others.
In addition, through education and other types of programs, our organization seeks to enhance the performance of nonprofit health care organizations in carrying out their unique roles and responsibilities.
Why A CBO?
Having a Community Based Organization(CBO) is essential for creating a “Medical Neighborhood” in the Western New York Area. CBOs facilitate collaboration among organizations that serve as medical and social supports to the community. When working together, these organizations are able to successfully meet needs and improve health outcomes. GBUCBO strives to partner with both clinical and community organizations to improve the overall health of Western New York.
