Park Morton Back-to-School and Resource Fair

Housing Opportunities Unlimited, the New Communities case management provider for the Park Morton neighborhood, sponsored its annual Back-to-School and Resource Fair at Park Morton.  Over 75 attendees enjoyed inflatable activities and games.  Children and youth received backpacks, complete with folders, notebooks, pens, pencils and other needed supplies for school.  Food was provided and local talent performed.  In exchange for school supplies, attendees were required to spend a few minutes at booths offering information on HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention.  Children and youth were also offered free dental screenings.
