NORWALK, Calif. - April 30, 2010 - Cerritos College Re-Entry Resource Program hosted its second annual Community Resource Fair Thursday, April 29. Nearly 30 local social service and community resource agencies participated. Representatives at each booth provided information and giveaways and answered questions about their services.
Agencies represented at the event include Bellflower USD School Readiness Program, Casa Youth Shelter, City of Norwalk Social Services, The Children’s Clinic, Didi Hirsch Mental Health Services, L.A. County District Attorney’s Office, Loving to Learn Association, Pioneer Medical Group, Southern California Rehabilitation Services among others.
“It’s a great event gathers various services available to us in one spot,” said a community member who were at the event.
“I was able to find out about education programs for my five-year-old in our school district.”
Despite the relentless gusty wind that blew away flyers and table skirts, community members were able to learn about resources and services offered by private and public organizations.
