6th Annual Boston Provider Exposition and Family Resource Day
6th Annual Boston Provider Exposition and
Family Resource Day
The Boston Provider Exposition and Family Resource Day creates an opportunity for service providers to educate child protective workers, family members, and the community-at-large about services available to families. This event is unique, given its primary focus on offering to families, especially those who are Department-involved, every opportunity to become knowledgeable about available services. Communities for People Inc., the Massachusetts Department of Social Services, the African American Association of Greater Boston, the Roxbury Community College, and the Reggie Lewis Track and Athletic Center jointly sponsor this information day.
At the most recent event, 80 different organizations participated. In addition to table displays and informative breakout sessions throughout the day, the Provider Exposition and Family Resource Day gives youth the chance to talk about their experiences in state custody, parents the time to discuss the importance of family-centered practice, and teens the chance to link to work opportunities. Food, children's activities, and raffle prizes add to the day's festive nature.
