Community Action Teams host Community Resource Fair for parents, students

 

The Salisbury Community Action Teams, created from a series of community meetings designed to tackle some of the city’s biggest challenges, will host a Community Resource Fair for parents and children, Saturday, Aug. 25, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Hurley YMCA.  

The Fair brings together local agencies specializing in health, addiction, education and family support in one place to get local families ready to go back to school. There will be information sessions for parents on vaping, gang awareness and drugs, certified childcare (during parenting sessions only), school supply giveaways and door prizes. Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Community Action Teams were born last year in order to help advance the vision of a “healthier community that provides a livable environment which is safer, with higher educational achievement, stronger workforce and employment opportunities and better relationships between the community, the City and law enforcement.”

The vision and focus areas were developed by Salisbury residents over a two-month period of work sessions in early 2017, featuring more than 20 community stakeholders from organizations including workforce development, religious institutions, the Salisbury Police Department, Rowan County Sheriff’s Office, Livingstone and Catawba Colleges, and the Salisbury-Rowan NAACP.

For more information on the Community Resource Fair or to join the Community Action Teams, please contact Anne Little, human relations manager at anne.little@salisburync.govor call (704) 638-5218.
