Craven Resource Council Forged, Bringing Communities and Resources Together

Habitat for Humanity of Craven CountyBlock Party to Celebrate – November 2, 2019 at the Jasper G. Hayes Omega Center

New Bern, NC – The Craven Resource Council was forged with 4 primary goals in mind: building relationships between community residents and partner stakeholders, raising awareness about community resources, identifying and addressing resource gaps, and maximizing the reach of partner agencies. The council is the result of a collaborative relationship between Habitat for Humanity of Craven County, Twin Rivers Opportunity, and Vision Forward and has since expanded to include other non-profit groups, City and County agencies, and other organizations.

The Craven Resource Council will host the first of many community focused events on Saturday, November 2, 2019 at the Jasper G. Hayes Omega Center, located at 800 Cedar St., New Bern, NC. The event will be held from 1:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m.

The Block Party will feature games for kids, free food, live DJ and dance performance, door prize giveaways, and a community resource fair. The event is free and open to the public. If you are an agency interested in joining this exciting collaborative group, please contact Antoinette Boskey at 252-633-9599.
