Informational Fair for Haitian Elders


The Haitian Elders Task Force will be hosting an Informational Fair on 
Thursday, May 17 from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM at Legion Park just one block east 
of Biscayne Boulevard at 64th Street in Miamiís Upper East Side.  Nonprofit 
and governmental agencies have been invited to set up informational booths 
to display their brochures and other materials.  Staff members from each 
agency will also be on hand to answer questions from the community.  
Organizers expect between 300 and 400 people to attend. Lunch will be 
served.

Many Haitian elders in Miami-Dade County have had to confront various 
problems as they adjust to life in South Florida.  Unfortunately, 
information regarding social services and other resources to assist elders 
goes unheard or is inaccurate.  Accurate information regarding immigration, 
health care, English classes, recreation, job opportunities and benefits 
will be provided during the fair.  The fair will provide an opportunity to 
address the unique needs of Haitian elders by providing information about 
available resources and how to access them.

The Haitian Elders Task Force is a coalition of community based and public 
organizations and is  co-sponsored by the Haitain American Foundation, Inc. 
and the Allaince for Aging, Inc.  For further information, please contact 
Fran Oliva at Alliance for Aging at (305) 670-6500 ext. 242. or Rose Lucas 
at (305) 758-3338
