GAP Community Center hosted its annual Health and Resource Fair on June 13. Camila* came looking for assistance for her four-year-old son with ADHD. She recently relocated from Puerto Rico following the devastation of Hurricane Maria. Her son received specialized attention there and was making progress in learning to manage his disorder, so Camila didn't want their relocation to disrupt his development. At the Health and Resource Fair she connected with agencies including Family Focus and Trina Davila Community Service Center, frequent partners of GAP Community Center. Now she's receiving assistance from the Erikson Institute which specializes in the assistance she needs!
Attendees like Camila were able to connect with dozens of vendors and receive blood pressure, cholesterol, and HIV testing on site.
