Getting Ready for a New School Year

Back-To-School Fair Helps Hundreds of Families

The Fair is open to active Project Self-Sufficiency participants who are currently striving towards economic self-sufficiency and family stability, and who are in on-going contact with their Case Manager.

Active agency participants who attend the information sessions at the Back-to-School Fair, and who take advantage of the networking opportunities provided there, are eligible to receive free haircuts and school supplies for their children.  Project Self-Sufficiency relies on local businesses and individuals for the donation of new school supplies.
