Free counseling, personal development services to be offered at Community Resource & Career Fair

RELEASE DATE: October 10, 2013

LEESBURG — The Lake County Probation Services Division, in partnership with the Goodwill Job Connection Center and Partners Investing in People, is reminding residents to make plans to attend the upcoming Community Resource and Career Fair on Friday, Oct. 11 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Venetian Gardens’ Community Building, 201 E. Dixie Ave., Leesburg.

The free event brings together more than 50 agencies to aid disadvantaged citizens seeking self- improvement opportunities, as well as their family members and the community at-large.

“Government agencies alone can’t respond to the complex needs of many people involved in our legal system,” said Tony Deaton, Lake County’s Chief Probation Officer. “The purpose of this event is to enhance community safety by empowering citizens who are striving to become productive members of our community, while reducing the likelihood of criminal justice system involvement.”

Some services and information provided at the event include assistance with employment, education, health care, driver licenses and ID, substance-abuse recovery, transportation, legal aid, housing services, victim assistance, veteran services and interactive workshops. Numerous employers are expected to be on-site to accept applications for current vacancies.

For more information about the fair, contact Wynderlon Blue at wblue@devereux.org or 352-638-2089; Mary Tucker at matucker58@hotmail.com or 352-396-0776; or Tonya Crane at tcrane@bop.gov or 352-689-3243.
