Do you know an individual or family that is in need in our community?  There's a Community Service Fair happening this weekend and we have all the details.

THE MORE YOU KNOW THE MORE YOU CAN HELP

Did you know that on a nightly basis in Owensboro there are over 300 homeless people?  Of those 300 there are only enough beds to serve 150 give or take.  Many were displaced during the pandemic and never able to recover.  Not everyone that is struggling is in addiction or suffering from a mental health issue.  Homelessness and poverty are not respecters of people.

Many people when they experience a loss and find themselves struggling don't know what to do the resource fairs are a great way to let everyone know what is available.

COMMUNITY RESOURCE FAIR FOR ALL

The Homeless Council of the Ohio Valley is hosting a Community Service Fair on Saturday, August 27, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. next to the Cadillac Motel on 4th street in the Barrett-Fischer parking lot.
