Feb 15Resource Fair Connects Residents to Local Opportunity
Last month, more than 20 residents gathered in Holly Park’s community room to take advantage of the opportunities offered during a resource fair.
Holly Park in Commerce City, Colorado, is home to more than 160 families with low incomes who are working toward a better life for themselves.
During the fair, community partners offered services such as tax assistance, job placement, and planning for the future. Representatives from Innovage, a company dedicated to helping people age in dignity, talked to residents about aging in place and other options for seniors.
“This resource fair was great, and offered such helpful information,” said a resident named Chris. “I am aging and need to prepare, but I still have a couple of years. I didn’t know Innovage offered so many services. They might be able to help my mom, who is currently living independently.”
The residents also got an opportunity to win a brand new bike that was donated from a local bicycle shop. Attendees of the fair had to get a stamp from each booth to be entered to win – Sabrina was the lucky winner!
Residents are looking forward upcoming resource fairs!
