Coming in October, Wednesday, October 18th, 11:30 to 1 pm we will do a mini-community assessment for University Place. This is a review of the services in the community for categories of the community like, Veteran Services, Elderly Care, Disability services for children and adults, etc. Please plan to come and share your knowledge about the community so that we can have a clear understanding of what is available and where we need to provide further services. This meeting will also take place at University Place Presbyterian Church.
