Finding resources and knowing what resources are available when you or a loved one have a disability is often difficult when you live in a rural county.

The Giles County Special Needs Support Group wants to help bridge the gap by bringing those resources to Giles County with their 3rd Annual Connecting the Journey: Resource Fair for Special Needs. There will be about 30 booths set up at the free resource fair where families can learn more about various services and organizations that are available to help them with their disability.

“We are targeting Giles, Lawrence, Lincoln, Marshall, Maury, and Wayne counties with this one event,” said Chrissy Hood, Giles County Special Needs Support Group chair.

The Resource Fair will take place on Saturday, Sept. 8, from 9 a.m. until noon at First Baptist Church Pulaski Fellowship Hall.

“The Resource Fair is an awesome place where families can get a one-stop shop wealth of resources. A lot of young parents don’t know where to turn and the Resource Fair helps with nervousness and doubt,” said Clenetta Perry, support group member and mom.
