PARMA, Ohio - Parma Area Family Collaborative held its first-ever Community Resource Fair on Tuesday at the former Hanna Elementary School on Snow Road in Parma.
The purpose of the fair was to connect families to available services in their community.
Over 30 vendors, including Goodwill, Girl Scouts, YMCA, Ohio Department of Job and Family Services and Parma Hunger Center, were on hand to distribute information and resources the public can use.
Parma Area Family Collaborative moved into the Hanna Building in October.
"We would like people to take away from the fair is information and resources that they can use to help their families," said Parma Area Family Collaborative resource specialist Whitney Liptrap.
Parma Area Family Collaborative is a social service agency located in Parma that serves 18 local communities.
In addition to linking families with resources, the group also focuses on the well being, safety, academic success and stability of children in the service communities.
The collaborative is funded through a partnership with Cuyahoga County government and the Division of Children and Family Services with support from the Parma City School District as its lead agency.
