Service Providers Connect Families to Resources and More
April 2018 - On Wednesday, March 28, 2018, Urban Strategies and the Sacramento Police Department hosted a BBQ at the Twin Rivers Community that brought together residents for a day of food and fun. The purpose of the BBQ was to give the youth an opportunity for recreation during their Spring Break as well as to build partnership between the Sacramento Police Department and the Twin Rivers Community. Around fifty residents of all ages came out to enjoy the food, snow cones, and Easter egg hunt.
Through the Choice Neighborhood Initiative, Urban Strategies has been providing direct support and services for Twin River residents, such as case management and job and workforce development. In addition to the Sacramento Police Department, six other organizations and agencies were present to inform the residents of services and opportunities related to health, safety, family services, employment, and transportation. These organizations and agencies were the Health Education Council, Sacramento Regional Transit, Birth & Beyond – Family Resource Center, Volt Workforce Solutions, Samuel Merritt University – Nurse Scholars, and Overland, Pacific & Cutler.
