Escambia Cares for its Citizens
The Neighborhood & Human Services Department hosted the Third Annual Escambia Cares Community Resource Expo Saturday, Sept. 24, 2017. The community resource expo was created as a mechanism to facilitate citizen access to local services provided by community partner organizations in Escambia County. The theme was hurricane preparedness.
The expo served as a “one-stop shop” for citizens by providing information in one location about resources and tools that are available to them. Community outreach and community partnering improves citizen access to local resources that are free or low-cost to citizens. This year’s event was held at the newly-opened Brownsville Community Resource Center. Over 60 community partners attended, offering valuable resources and services to citizens including employment opportunities, health care services, educational opportunities, affordable housing and much more. Over 300 citizens attended the event.
