Second Career Fair being hosted at Dawson Park September 6 10am-12pm

On Tuesday, August 2, the Eliot Neighborhood association, the Vancouver Avenue First Baptist Church and Cascadia Behavioral Health held a resource and job fair in Dawson Park.  The event was supported by a grant from the City of Portland Office of Civic Life. Eleven employers including Amazon, Dave’s Killer Bread and Legacy were there in addition to resources such as WorkSource, Voc Rehab and Free Geek, who were distributing free laptops. Cascadia provided hygiene kits and the church distrusted food boxes as well as fresh grilled sausages. It was a very successful event, bringing the community together to meet the needs of the people in the neighborhood. We also held a raffle for 10 $25 Fred Meyer gift cards.

We will have another fair on Tuesday September 6 from 10-12.

  1. Hello, I would like to inquire if 211info would be able to set up a table at your next event. We are the state-wide information line connecting people to social services (food, health, shelter, transportation, medical, etc.). Thank you for your consideration.
