On November 22, 2014, there was a health/resource fair hosted at Sacramento High School by WE Connect. The objective of this event was to connect the all attendees to the resources we had available in the community to promote a healthier and financially secured lifestyle. Despite the rainy weather conditions on that Saturday morning, there were still a lot of attendees that allowed us to extend our resources to through our table, The Hub. With the Sac BHC Youth Media Team’s coverage, we would deem this event successful due to the many positive interactions we encountered.
Aside from The Hub’s participation, there was an immense support coming from the community resources which ranged from helping attendees with a basic health checkup, offering healthier food options, free phones, housing information, immigration services, and plenty more. These events brought to you by WE Connect truly follow their program philosophy of making these one-stop-shop resource environments.
WE Connect was founded by the former California First lady, Maria Shriver in 2005, and since then it has expanded into becoming a community resource hub with the resources they are connected to as well as being under The Endowment’s wing.
