VISTA Kem Dwumaah Succeeds at Community Outreach Event

Kem 1VISTA member Kem attended Lewisville ISD’s (LISD) Back to School Fair, where families had the opportunity to receive school supplies, food, clothes and haircuts, in order to prepare for the start of school. This event also offered marketing tables for local businesses and non-profits. Kem manned a marketing table for Youth and Family Counseling at this event. The VISTA member informed parents about YFC’s School Referral Program which provides 6 free sessions of counseling to LISD students that are considered “at-risk” in some way. So many families were interested in the agencies programs that the VISTA ran out of items to hand out about half way through! Luckily another staff member was on the way to relieve the VISTA and brought more items.
