Community Partners will host two free provider fairs featuring local social service and community providers in May. Community Partners, a family service program of Geminus, finds agencies, professionals, support groups and assistance programs that keep families healthy, happy and together. These programs include job counseling, parenting classes, and advice on how to make use of community services.
“With all of the new and continuing challenges parents and children are facing, we hope to connect Northwest Indiana families to free community social services and affordable local providers,”said Nicholas Neal, director of program development at Geminus Corporation.
Attendees will engage with professionals from a variety of programs including legal services, financial assistance, mental and physical health care, childcare,substance use treatment, and more.
