Could a Buffalo area support service for the elderly be replicated in Rochester?

   This story was produced through the New York & Michigan Solutions Journalism Collaborative, a partnership of news organizations and universities dedicated to rigorous and compelling reporting about responses to social problems.

The group is supported by the Solutions Journalism Network.

WHEC's Dianna Dewberry  found a workable solution an hour west on I-90 in Buffalo. It's a non-profit called Canopy of Neighbors.
