The City of Fresno is currently developing its 5-Year Consolidated Plan to assess the City’s housing and community development needs for 2020-2024. The Plan will guide how Fresno spends an annual $11 million in federal funding to address community needs. A second study, the Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice, is also being conducted to examine barriers to equal housing and access to jobs, schools and transportation across the City. Please plan to attend one of the community meetings for a discussion of these important issues. Meeting dates, times, and locations may be found on the attached flyers, which are provided in Spanish and Hmong as well as English. Please share with others. See you at the meeting!
For 25 years, Fresno Barrios Unidos has served youth, young adults, and their families in South Fresno and beyond with programs and services centered on love, healing, wellness, and empowerment. Over the years, with your support, we have been able to transform lives in our community. Now, more than ever, it is time to invest in the future of Fresno Barrios Unidos so that we can continue to drive forward the vision we all have for Fresno and the Valley.We will achieve this with your support, by purchasing our building so we can have a forever home! Our youth, young adults, and their families are beyond deserving of this investment. We plan to bring a full service medical clinic to our home, a healing garden to reconnect our youth to the power of mother earth, and a community room for art, dance, and meditation.
Please help make this vision happen by joining us at our Annual Fundraiser: Noche En El Barrio on Friday, October 25th from 6-10PM at Elite Events Venue (4105 W. Figarden Drive, Fresno, CA).
