This Resource Fair is designed to promote and provide information regarding various opportunities and activities for youth and families in the Village of Hanover Park. We are seeking participation from local agencies, churches, schools, recreational and philanthropic organizations dedicated to providing safe, fun activities for children and families in our community. The Resource Fair will be free and open to the public. Hanover Township will provide complementary bus service from some of the area schools to the Park District.
There will be games and activities for the kids, performances by local children, and a raffle. Concessions will be available for a small fee.
Who are the “Kids at Hope” in our community? Every child who resides in our community is to be considered a “Kid at Hope” rather than a “Kid at Risk”. The belief of our Hanover Park Coalition is that all children are capable of success without exceptions! We are united in bringing this message to the entire Hanover Park area; that all children can find some area of interest that will provide success and an avenue of involvement for them. The goal is a future that is productive and happy no matter what they choose to do with their lives. We choose to support the positive hope that all children will find something that suits them and to provide them with many opportunities along the way!
There are many ways to be successful in life. Many of them are outside of the academic area of school and career and also include all of life’s great offerings - home and family, sports and recreation, service to the community and other hobbies or interests. Our goal is to provide information to children and their families about the opportunities that are here, already in place for them, in our very own community.
