Potluck-in-the-Park Homeless Resource Fair 2007

Once again Yellow Brick Road represented Homeless Youth Services at Potluck-in-the-Park's 16th annual BBQ and Resource Faire this Sunday September 16th. The event took place at Portland State University and, at last count, more than 950 guests were served. This marks the biggest Resource Faire ever! Yellow Brick Road provided stationary outreach to dozens of homeless and high-risk young people (including their older friends), providing much needed first-aid & hygiene supplies as well as direct referrals to services such as emergency shelter. We even had unexpected help at our table from some young volunteers...
Thanks to Peggy Reuler, Dave Utzinger, all the volunteers, and everyone who came out for making this amazing event such a success.
See you next year!
