The City of Eugene’s Community Court will hold an outdoor social services provider fair for community members in need. The provider fair will take place next Wednesday, Oct. 21, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the East Park Block in Downtown Eugene and will include a wide variety of local service providers, ranging from assistance finding healthcare to housing, therapy, and other services.
“This fair will help connect our community with a wide range of local service providers, all in one place,” said Cheryl Stone, Court Administrator. “Before COVID-19, we typically had about 50 visitors to the Community Court every Friday to access these service providers and get the help they need.”
Community Court aims to improve public safety and reduce misdemeanor activity in the downtown core to improve safety and quality of life for all. The process promotes responsibility in participants through a combination of supervised community service and direct connections to social service providers. Community Court resumed on July 10 but had to remove service providers from the room due to spacing requirements for COVID-19.
Attendees should wear a mask and practice physical distancing. Disposable masks will be available for those who do not have one.
