Victor Community Support Services participated in the Oroville Ampla Health Center Health Fair celebrating National Health Center Week on August 18, 2017. Ampla offered Health Screenings at no cost and access to many local resources and services. This was a great opportunity for community outreach! Our staff had conversations with many attendees and community agencies about Victor’s services and enjoyed being part of the day.
Health Fair events such as this are a great way to meet and talk to families who need support, but we also love the opportunity to meet other organizations and share Victor’s vision and services. Victor’s staff coordinated with Ampla Health administrative and medical staff and other potential partners, such as Head Start, on possible ways to collaborate in the future for referring people directly to VCSS, Chico. Additionally, this was a fitting endeavor because both Victor and Ampla Health provide health care to those with full scope MediCal. We are looking forward to many more opportunities like this to be involved in community events and share our services.
