Homeless Service Fair
Smith Park | 8:30am-1pm
Thursday, September 21, 2023
Galloway UMC | 9am – 3pm
These free events offer an easy way for individuals and families to learn about and access resources and housing services right here in our own community. City of Jackson Homeless Coordinators Tommy Brown and Freddric Brandon will be on site, as well as other organizations throughout the Jackson-metro who help serve our local homeless population on a regular basis.
Free event services often include medical, mental health, substance abuse, housing, dental, social security benefits, legal, free eyeglasses, identification, food, clothing, wheelchair repair, and more. This approach eliminates barriers and ensures that the homeless population receives services that have an immediate impact.
Opportunities to donate, sponsor, or volunteer at these events are welcomed. Contact Freddric Brandon at 769.209.3390 or Gwen Thompson at Gwen@mshousingpartnership.org to learn more, OR click the website button above.
