The Unidos Project will host a Fall Community Resource Fair from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 20, at West Mesa High School, 6701 Fortuna Rd. NW.

Organizers of the fair have sought out bilingual professionals who can help answer questions and provide guidance to anyone facing obstacles that may keep them from completing high school or earning a college degree.

Experts will also be available to answer health and employment questions. Sarmiento is one of the people working relentlessly to engage people from all walks of life, socio-economic backgrounds and ethnicities to be a part of the Unidos Project. The Unidos Project is partnering with dozens of government and community agencies to identify and meet the needs of people who are at risk of not completing high school or enrolling in a post-secondary institution.

The emphasis is on education, because research shows that the better educated a person is, the more likely he or she is to earn more, stay healthy and enjoy a better life.

The event is free and open to the public. Lunch and a kids corner will also will be available.

Over 400 people attended this event last spring and expressed their appreciation for being able to access information for health, education and career needs in one location.

“The Unidos Project, and its partners, are thrilled to once again partner with West Mesa, our community school, to offer another Resource Fair,” said Dr. Jozi De Leon, vice president for Equity and Inclusion at the University of New Mexico.
