MERRILLVILLE, IN – Community Partners hosts two free fairs featuring local social service and community providers in June. Attendees will engage with professionals from a variety of programs including legal services, financial assistance, mental and physical health care, childcare, substance use treatment, and more.
“As part of our mission to strengthen families and build healthy communities, we connect Northwest Indiana families in need of free and affordable community social services to local providers,” said Nicholas Neal, director of program development at Geminus Corporation, a network partner with Regional Health Systems.
Community Partners, a family service program of Geminus, finds agencies, professionals, support groups, and assistance programs that keep families healthy, happy, and together. These programs may include job counseling, parenting classes, and advice on how to make better use of community services.
