MOUNTAIN VIEW — A Family Resource Day was held on July 31 at Quail Run Apartments, which serves low-income families and individuals.

The event — organized by Lincoln Avenue Capital, an affordable housing company — was held to connect families with representatives from a variety of local organizations, including the Boys & Girls Clubs of Southwest Washington, Girls Inc. of the Pacific Northwest, Educational Opportunities for Children and Families, CDM Caregivers, Clark County Volunteer Lawyers Program, Community in Motion, and Bridgeview Resource Center. Vancouver councilwoman Sarah J. Fox also attended.

“Boys & Girls Clubs of Southwest Washington is here to support youth and families,” said Francisco Bueno, executive director of Boys & Girls Clubs of Southwest Washington, in a news release. “We believe that true support and change in our community comes when we all play a role — this opportunity gives us the chance to participate in partnership with others.”
