Annual event helps connect families to local resources
The Lee’s Summit R-7 School District Guidance Department sponsored its annual Community Resource Fair Feb. 17. The event is sponsored by the school district’s school counselors and school-community liaisons.
The goal of the annual fair is to provide school counselors, social workers, liaisons and principals with comprehensive information about the wide variety of resources available to help students and families. Approximately 30 organizations attended the fair which provided opportunities for school district staff to talk to organization representatives about available services.
Participants included mental-health organizations, employment programs, substance-abuse prevention groups, youth centers, housing programs, health and fitness organizations and groups assisting low-income families — just to name a few.
