Participants will be educated on how to access these current services that support physical and emotional health of the family, with the intent to emphasize the importance of overall physical and emotional wellness.


This EXPO will highlight overall community service availability, i.e., educational services, family mental and emotional wellness, family support and preservation services as well as co-parenting supports and family engagement opportunities.
