URDC PARTICIPATES IN CANAAN BAPTIST’S THIRD ANNUAL HOME SERVICES RESOURCE OUTREACH SEMINAR

On March 11, URDC participated in New Canaan Baptist Church’s third annual Home Services Resource Outreach Seminar. The Seminar was organized to provide information to the community on organizations that offer home services to the elderly and low-income at a reasonable price.

Besides URDC, My Way, Center in the Park, Habitat for Humanity, and The Energy Co-op also made presentations at the Seminar on their programs, which ranged from home repair, home rehab, senior home services, and energy bill savings. Over 100 community residents attended and were able to obtain valuable information on the various non-profit organizations that serve seniors and low-income families in the Germantown community.

URDC is proud to be part of this valuable outreach to the community. New Canaan Baptist Church is a member and financial supporter of URDC.
