For Douglas County residents enduring hard times, it’s good to know that a free hot meal and more than 20 local service organizations will be available at the Strive to Thrive Resource and Service Fair, on January 24 from 4-6 p.m. at Calvary Chapel, 1100 Caprice Drive in Castle Rock.
This free event will provide attendees with information about how to access food and clothing, medical assistance and more, while providing them with the opportunity to receive many of those benefits while at the event.
Attendees will also learn about employment opportunities, how to apply for food stamps, receive a wellness check, as well as many other supportive services.
“Strive to Thrive exemplifies the public-private partnerships we assemble that we hope will help return individuals and families to self-sufficiency,” said Douglas County Commissioner David Weaver. “This event provides members of our community with the opportunity to connect with multiple service-providers in one convenient location.”
Strive to Thrive is hosted by Douglas County’s Community of Care Network.
