Flagler County Health and Human Services Department is bringing together a full complement of social services providers for its “Flagler Fall Outreach” to provide free information, as well as immediate assistance with things like free food and haircuts. The event will be held from 1 to 4 p.m. on October 20 at Cattleman’s Hall at the Fairgrounds.

“We’ve received feedback from the community that it is very helpful to have an event that provides one-stop social services shopping, if you will,” said Health and Human Services Director Joseph Hegedus. “There are times when people slip through the cracks for no other reason than they are unsure where to go for help. This is the place to be.”
