Houston County Community Resource Fair 2023

Dothan, Ala.---Dothan Housing proudly hosted the Houston County Community Resource Fair at its new administrative headquarters, Our Community Housing and Enrichment Center (OCHEC). The fair collaborated with multiple entities, including Troy University RSVP, SpectraCare Health Systems, DAV, the Dothan Career Center, and Dothan Housing. The community resource fair, focusing on Veterans and Seniors, consisted of over 60 different area agencies and organizations providing resources, jobs, and health services.


"Dothan Housing's goal has always been to make OCHEC a hub for community development and resources," says Samuel P. Crawford, DH's CEO. "The resource fair was a great opportunity to display our commitment to the well-being of Wiregrass residents".


Attendees arrived in droves via car and senior facilities, such as Rosehill Senior Center, by bus to participate in the activities. Vendors were excited to provide much-needed services and connect with the public. With federal and local agencies present, the fair delivered high-quality services like blood pressure testing, HIV testing, job placement, and childcare services for intergenerational households. Participants also received fresh fruits and vegetables from the Wiregrass Area Food Bank and Dothan Housing's Resident Services Department.
