Community Resource Fair
What are our priorities?
-Focus on community members who are not already connected to services, and would not access services during the day
What do we want to focus on?
-legal services and expungement
-will need to schedule the event so that it meets with their registration program
-employment opportunities (how to connect people with employment opportunities)
-have vendors have very clear next steps
What structure do we want?
–walk-in (no registration)
–after hours (after work hours)
Bon Secours does events all the time–should reach out
Workforce Roundtable would love to be involved in something similar, would love to be involved
Biggest barriers: budget; legal services (having attorneys that are willing to work off hours); strong outreach partners/strong outreach team
Could we partner with similar organizations? Yes, have to identify partners who have both the technical skills needed and who can do outreach
Potential partners: Project PLASE, Safe Streets, Mayor’s Office of Employment Development, ABAG Workforce Roundtable
Richard Parker would be willing to take on the the point coordination with SWP staff
Kristine: community bulletin boards?, training in how to do follow ups?
Marvin: willing to do outreach
Ivan: suggested using lawn signs
