Annual Community Awareness Evening

This event occurs annually in November.

Community Awareness Evening gives families the opportunity to learn about the “help services” that are provided in the community by local agencies and outreach programs that come into the area. The evening provides a venue for service providers and families to meet and learn about one another. Families become familiar with the services and put a face to the provider. This helps them feel more comfortable when accessing their service.

A spin-off of the evening is the opportunity for local agencies to network with other agencies and learn about their services and ways they can compliment and reinforce each other.
