As families gear up for Halloween activities, Councilmember Price invited several local partners to come together on Oct. 14 at a special Community Resource Fair to bring a bit of joy to CD 9 neighbors located on and around the 27th Street blast zone.
Families were treated to a wide range of activities including games, arts & crafts, face painting and other special treats. Just as importantly, neighbors were connected to resources designed to bring them some relief.
With St. John’s Well Child and Family Center mobile clinic on hand, residents were able to see a physician, obtain an auditory exam, sign-up for health insurance and get the COVID-19 vaccine. Individuals were also able to obtain mental health referrals from the LA County Department of Mental Health, as well as obtain information on filing claims with the City, and received information on social services.
If you or someone you know has been affected by the 27th Street fireworks explosion and are in need of assistance, please contact Councilmember Price’s District Office at (323) 846-2651.
