United Way holding community resource fair next week

The United Way of Bartholomew County will be holding a Community Resource Fair next week, where those in need can find out about help available from local organizations and companies.

Organizers say the goal is for residents to be able to “meet face-to-face with those who are offering assistance, and get connected with available resources” says Cathy King, community impact director for the United Way.

Organizations taking part in the Community Resource Fair include:

  • The Arc of Bartholomew County
  • ASAP Bartholomew County
  • Centerstone Health Services
  • Columbus Regional Health
  • Columbus Township Trustee
  • Family School Partners
  • Human Services, Inc.
  • Just Friends
  • Lincoln Central Neighborhood Family Center
  • Love Chapel
  • Sans Souci
  • Stride Center
  • Su Casa
  • Turning Point Domestic Violence Services

The community resource fair is being supported by a $5,000 grant from Duke Energy. The power company will have representatives on hand to assist with bill management, energy assistance funds, and energy efficiency programs

The event will be at Memorial Baptist Church on 7th Street from 9 a.m. to noon on Friday, February 16th. A light breakfast will be served. The event is free and you are invited to attend.
