Youth, Health and Safety Fair offers Resources for Parents

Santa Maria Valley parents seeking resources for their children have the opportunity to learn about useful local agencies – and also learn about valuable parenting schools – at a community fair on Thursday, September 28th.

The Youth, Health, and Safety Fair will be held from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Four Square Church, 709 North Curryer Street, Santa Maria.  Applications for booths are available at the City of Santa Maria Recreation and Parks Department, 615 South McClelland Street. Youth services agencies are invited to set up a booth and share their materials.

Join City of Santa Maria Mayor Alice Patino and 35th District State Assemblyman Jordan Cunningham at this event,

Earlier this year, the Mayor’s Task Force on Youth Safety stepped forward to create a forum for positive, long-lasting opportunities for at-risk youth and their families. This effort consists of support from the community’s families, and the committed involvement of local service providers, schools, nonprofits, faith-based community, law enforcement, and government agencies.

“Our team has developed a plan to focus efforts on improving youth safety in our community,” Mayor Patino said.

Questions may be directed to the City of Santa Maria Recreation and Parks Department, 925-0951 extension 2260; or, to Assemblyman Cunningham’s district office at 444 Higuera Street, Suite 100, San Luis Obispo, (805) 549-3381, or to his Senior Field Representative Felix Esparza at (805) 549-3381.
