Hundreds Attend Resource Fair for the Homeless in Oakland

In Oakland, Building Opportunities for Self-Sufficiency, or BOSS, organized a resource fair for the homeless in collaboration with high school volunteers, and community organizations. Service providers such as Swords to Plowshares, the Suitcase Clinic, Bay Area Legal Aid, Project Vision, and the City of Oakland were in attendance. This one day resource fair was designed with the idea that instead of people looking for services, the service-providers would go to the people.
