    On Wednesday September 29, 2010 from 2:00-4:00 pm we will be holding our fair at Preble Street Resource Center’s Soup Kitchen dining room. The event will serve to inform and educate participants, as well as providers, about recovery-oriented resources and health promotion-related services within our community. As a coalition and as members of Portland’s diverse community, one of our goals is to create opportunities for people to have access to whatever they need in order to establish more stable and healthy lifestyles. Each year, this occasion offers area providers an opportunity to reach nearly 100 people accessing Preble Street’s services. We offer free food, prizes and the opportunity for Portland’s vulnerable community members to access 25+ local service providers. Not only is this a great opportunity for participants, it’s a great networking opportunity for providers!
