United Way Hosting Community Café Series
United Way of Broome County will be hosting a series of Community Cafés, all across Broome County. Through the Community Café, United Way of Broome County seeks input from community members regarding economic mobility, health access, and childhood and youth success in Broome County. The goals include improving resident’s well-being and quality of life, better aligning public and private resources with community-based interventions that are successful in improving outcomes for residents, developing strategies that match promising practices to the unique challenges of each particular community, and building partnerships among public and private, municipal and non-profit organizations.
In addition, United Way of Broome County’s partners in the health fields will be present to share information on preventative care and complete sign-ups for those who are eligible for Medicaid and primary care services. The Community Café will help United Way of Broome County to better serve communities throughout Broome County, and amplify the voices of community residents.
The five-part series will continue through April, with Community Cafés across Broome County.
All Community Café Conversations will be held from 5:00-7:00pm. A free dinner, childcare, and $25 Visa Gift Card (for participants 18+) will be provided. To reserve your free meal, or if you have any questions about the series, please contact Alexis Savidge at 607-240-2007 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Walk-ins welcome until capacity is reached.
