Cleanup Continues At Building Housing Non-Profits In Rochester

A local social services organization says that a facility that helps seniors in the northwest quadrant of the city  will return to service on Monday, but at a temporary location.

The Charles Settlement Senior Center says that seniors will be welcomed at a temporary site at 431 Jay Street.  The relocation is due to severe damage caused by a burst sprinkler pipe last Tuesday night at the Charles Settlement House location at 71 Parkway in Rochester.

That building, which houses senior services, administrative offices and other non-profit organizations remains closed as clean-up continues.

The city’s Northwest Neighborhood Service Center, which is on the first floor of that building, has been temporarily relocated to 1099 Jay Street. Another organization, The Somali Community of Western New York, is temporarily relocating to St. Mary’s Place on Lexington Avenue.

An official with Charles Settlement House says it is likely to take several weeks before the building on Parkway will be fully functional.
