Hundreds of Hudson County residents took advantage of Saturday’s Community Resource Fair held at Union City High School.

Residents had access to more than a dozen resource tables which provided information on critical services. The resources and services included information regarding programs and grant opportunities available to small businesses in the area, senior citizens services, and vaccinations administered by Hudson Regional Health. Rep. Rob Menendez’s office was available to assist constituents with immigration and passport casework.

                                                               Translators were on hand to assist Spanish-speaking residents.

“Bringing these resources and services to the citizens that need them is essential to ensure Union City’s community receives the necessary care and information they need to live full, happy lives here in Hudson County,” said County Executive Craig Guy. “I’m proud to have worked with Mayor Brian Stack, Commissioner Fanny Cedeño and Rep. Rob Menendez to bring together all the municipal, county, and federal resources available to them in a relaxed and convenient atmosphere.”

The Hudson County Community Resource Fairs are one of the many initiatives County Executive Guy and the County Board of Commissioners have undertaken to meet residents where they are, in their own communities, while drawing together services and county departments in one place to directly service the people and families that need them. The Union City Community Resource Fair was the third installment of these events, with the previous two being held in Bayonne and Kearny.

Community Resource Fairs will be coming to all 12 municipalities in HudsonCounty.  The next scheduled Resource Fair will be held in Jersey City.
