The event was held at the church after services with each agency representative visiting every table to provide information & awareness of the various services, to deepen connections & built stronger relationships.

Through small group discussions, the immigrant community received some face to face time in a congenial environment learning about services and their rights.  On hand to share information were Mayor Jeri Mouio, Palm Beach County Victim Services & Certified Rape Crisis Center, West Palm Beach Police Department, Center for Independent Living Options/CILO, Aid to Victims of Domestic Abuse/AVDA, El Sol, Catholic Charities, Legal Aid Society of Palm Beach County, Honorary Consul of Guatemala in Palm Beach County, Healthy Mothers Healthy Babies, Boys & Girls Club, Rybovich Yacht Builders & the West Palm Beach Police Dept. Explorers & Cadets.

There was food in abundance, toys for the children, some raffle prizes & most importantly, solid outreach achieved through one on one connections.
