Cazenovia Recovery Systems, Inc. started as the dream of Bill O'Connor, a man with a vision and a heart of gold. He wanted to establish a movement in South Buffalo to help alcoholics get sober and return to work and their families. With the rigorous intent to obtain a shelter for adult men who suffer from alcoholism, he organized a rent agreement with the owner of a former nursing home at 486 North Legion Drive in Buffalo, New York. This agreement continued until the owner lost the building to the City of Buffalo for back taxes. The building was purchased through city auction by Edward Cottrell. Mr. O'Connor then found a need to put together a group of community members to assist him in the enhancement of his vision. That group today is the Board of Directors, who in 1980 established a not-for-profit agency called Friends of Cazenovia Manor, Inc. At this point, Bill O'Connor and the Board of Directors entered into a purchase agreement with Mr. Cottrell to purchase 486 North Legion Drive as the first halfway house for alcoholic men in the Buffalo area. This purchase contained certain conditions:
