After a 3-year hiatus, 622 Project Family Connect is back!
Our staff recognizes that many of our families and students struggle due to social, mental health, and income reasons as well as from not knowing about the resources available to help them. The goal of Project Family Connect is to connect families with information and community resources that might help them become more stable which in turn allows children to be better prepared to focus on learning. One of the main benefits of this event is everything will be in one place at one time. The event will be held:
Saturday, April 21, 2018
Skyview Community School
1100 Heron Avenue, Oakdale
8:00 am- 12:00 pm.
622 Project Family Connect will host a variety of medical, dental, legal, mental health, social service, food support, and job support providers along with offering free items like basic care needs and food. Over 50 providers are already confirmed.
New this year is the Shoe Bus, the Ramsey County Mental Health Collaborative, a mini job fair, and resume writing assistance from the U of MN. Participants will leave with 5 printed copies of their resume.
How can you help?
Over 200 volunteers will be needed the days leading up to the event, as well as during and after the event.
Food and toiletry drives will be held within the district in early April. Local business support is needed too.
