MIDLOTHIAN – First responders were able to connect with nonprofit and public services providers during a recent networking event at the Midlothian Conference Center.
“The purpose of this is to get information into people’s hands so they know where to reach for help,” sponsor and organizer Melissa Boler of Bridges Training Foundation said.
More that 40 services and agencies filled the conference center for the first Ellis County Resource Expo, which sought to connect community leaders, first responders, schools, legal and other governmental agencies, nonprofits and public service providers.
The nonprofit organizations on hand included Meals on Wheels, Waxahachie Care, Waxahachie Senior Citizen Center, Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, Bridges Training Foundation, North Ellis County Outreach, and others. During the event, participants took turn describing the resources they provide to the community.
The conference was sponsored by Methodist Medical Center, Midlothian Police Department and Bridges Training Foundation.
