Meet Jakob Smidt - PUSH Social Worker Intern

My name is Jakob Smidt.  I am a social work student from University at Buffalo. If you need help/have questions about your benefits, want to talk to someone about how to solve some problems, or wish you could quit some unhealthy behaviors, come and talk to me. I will be helping PUSH Buffalo members with these things, and I will be around the Grant St Neighborhood Center. 

I came to the US in 2001 from Denmark, and have live in Buffalo since 2003.  In addition to working with PUSH, I have worked in the Buffalo community for 10 years.  I have a lot of knowledge about benefits and entitlements, as well as housing and Social Security concerns.

I can be reached at the PUSH office at 271 Grant St. on Fridays between 8AM and 2PM, and at the 460 Massachusetts Ave office on Fridays between 2PM and 4PM.  In addition you can call me during the week and leave a message.  My phone number is (716) 884-0356 ext. 124. Please call me with any concerns you have, I would be happy to help you.
