You are invited to Sylmar’s Homeless Connect Day, Thursday, March 16, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at El Cariso Park. Take the 210 West and exit Hubbard. Turn right and go up past the second signal on the right.
LAHSA funds regionally, services for physical and mental health, detoxification, jobs and housing. Food and backpacks will be available.
Sixty-five attended our connect day last month on February 16.
The big day is April 8 when Medical Mission Mobile Health Care units will adventure up the hill to Chapel of the Hills located at 11120 Oro Vista. There will be free medical, dental and optical services provided from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. to lowincome families and individuals. These items and services are compliments of the charity, Making It Happen, which is headed up by Pattee Colvin.
“Looking to provide when there’s a need,” Colvin produced two dates each of the last two years, serving 95 locals each day. This year she’s scheduling three. The other two dates are September 9 and November 11. You gotta see this woman move; she’s a one-woman band. She’s got her own grant from Mr. Dilbeck in La Crescenta.It’s fitting since their folks jump our borders. It’s also timely since Trump’s new “health plan” will leave his base supporters high and dry.
On a final note for this week, it’s Doctor’s Week. be sure to send a note of thanks to your physician!
