Free vaccines, scheduling for counseling, and food just a few of the activities to enjoy during community events
We are hosting a series of free community Health Fairs in October in Brookside: 1-3 p.m., Oct. 1; 3-5 p.m., Oct. 12; and 1-3 p.m., Oct. 29.
Participants will have the opportunity to receive free services provided by JFS and several of its community partners including:
- Medicaid or Medicare counseling
- COVID-19 vaccine shots
- HIV testing
- Medical assistance
- Food and household items
- Information about JFS’ Counseling and Wellness programs
JFS provides human services for people facing challenges in everyday life or times of crisis — regardless of faith, age, culture or lifestyle.
The October Health Fairs are open to the public – no registration is required. Participants are asked to wear masks to protect everyone in this COVID-19 environment. “Taking care of your mental and physical health often takes a back a seat when you are struggling financially and facing food and housing insecurities. We see this everyday among our clients,” said Maggie Haghirian, LMSW, director of KesherKC, JFS’ social service and food pantry program.
“Neglecting your health can obviously lead to other ongoing challenges for you and your family,” she said. “We are excited to offer and provide access to many free healthcare services along with our other community partners.”
