Supervisor Doug Chaffee and County of Orange Social Services Agency Host Health Fair and Children's Day Event

Orange County Supervisor Doug Chaffee, Fourth District, and the County of Orange Social Services Agency (SSA) announced a Health Fair and Children's Day event from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, May 6, 2023 at Maxwell Park, 2660 W. Broadway in Anaheim. 

Residents can receive food, health screenings and school supplies while supplies last; apply for public assistance benefits such as CalFresh, Medi-Cal, General Relief or CalWORKs; and visit with participating partners to find out more about other services and resources available to them. 

“As we move away from the COVID-19 pandemic, many of our residents have struggled with the loss of CalFresh emergency benefits and the return to the Medi-Cal renewal process,” said Supervisor Doug Chaffee. “It is important that our community is aware of all the eligible benefits available to them. We hope this Health Fair will help all of our residents get the support and resources they need during this challenging time.”

SSA will bring its Mobile Response Vehicle – an office on wheels – and a team of eligibility professionals to assist attendees in applying for public assistance benefits or to answer questions recipients may have about their current benefits. In-language services will be available.

“Orange County’s strength is its ability to come together to address the community’s needs. SSA is pleased to be part of the collaboration Supervisor Chaffee and his team have formed for the Health Fair and Children’s Day Event,” said SSA Director An Tran.

Participating partners include the Anaheim Elementary School District, CalOptima Health, OC Coalition of Community Health Centers, Cal Assist, ICNA, Federacion de Clubes Unidos por Guerrero en California, OC Health Care Agency and more. Local student folklorico groups will be providing entertainment during the event.

Event parking is located on West Broadway near Haskett branch library.
