The ASSIST Agency will be sponsoring a Resource Fair for individuals in Jeff Davis Parish needing assistance with a number of services.
On Tuesday, February 19, ASSIST will host the fair from 10:00 to 12:00 at Union Baptist Family Life Center located on 1015 S. Main St, Jennings.
The fair is free and open to the public and will include free tax preparation provided by the United Way of Southwest Louisiana VITA program.
Attendees will be able to meet with representatives from services available in Jeff Davis parish such as emergency rent/utility assistance, home health services, mental health services, food stamps.
Organizers say the theme for the day is Mardi Gras, so wearing beads is encouraged. Free lunch and door prizes will be given out
