Over 20 local organizations are teaming up for Project Healthy Neighbors, a health fair for the homeless from Nov. 16-18. The 5th annual event will provide a range of free services to the homeless population in Santa Barbara. Some of the services include swine flu vaccinations, dental hygiene care, and counseling. Organizers are expecting almost 500 homeless individuals and families.
"The time, effort and resources contributed to make Project Healthy Neighbors happen, from the most experienced professionals to the young volunteers just starting to seek out ways to make a difference, is awe-inspiring and a spiritual gift to and from the community," said Ken Williams, homeless outreach social worker and Coordinator of Project Health Neighbors. "Project Healthy Neighbors has truly become a community-wide effort to improve the health and safety of some of our most vulnerable neighbors, and the health of our entire community."
The fair will be held at Casa Esperanza Homeless Shelter from 8 a.m. - 11 a.m.
