Besides living without shelter, most have trouble accessing food, warm clothing, health care and dental care.

At the Lewis Centre on Oct. 11, the Ad Hoc Emergency Resources Organization (AHERO) is hosting its sixth annual Community Resource Fair. Individuals can connect to basic agencies under one roof, on one day, who provide a variety of supports to members of the community.

This event is made possible with the support from the Comox Valley Housing Task Force, the Lewis Centre and the AHERO event committee, in addition to many service agencies, donations from local businesses and individuals.

The Community Resource Fair is still in need of 30 $20 gift cards, that will be distributed at the event. Gift cards can be dropped off at the Wachiay Friendship Centre at 1625B McPhee Ave.
