CALUMET CITY, Ill. – In an effort to provide information and help residents connect with various resources and health services, state Rep. Marcus Evans, D-Chicago, will host a community resource and health expo next week.
“Speaking to residents in my district, I understand how valuable programs and services are to people’s quality of life and their ability to provide for their families,” Evans said. “Our community resource and health expo is our effort to address some the concerns I hear by bringing information and resource to our community and informing resident of the help that is available to them.”
Evans’ community resource and health expo will take place on Wednesday, Sept. 20 from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. on the campus of South Suburban College at the Athletic and Physical Fitness Center, located at 15800 State Street in South Holland. The expo is free and open to the public. Participating vendors include CEDA, a social services and community development organization Illinois Department of Human Services, the Housing Development Authority, and the Citizens Utility Board.
Evans is also partnering with Medulla LLC, a wellness-focused organization offering critical health programs to communities. Attendees will have the opportunity to receive free resources, health services, utility assistance and information about housing programs.
“I look forward to connecting with the people I represent at our resource fair and I encourage all to come out,” said Evans. “This expo is about addressing the needs of the people and building up our community.”
For more information about the community resource and health fair residents are urged to call Rep. Evans’ district office at 773-783-8492.
