Our annual Back to School Bash at Clark Park in southwest Detroit took place on August 16, and about 1200 children and parents attended. We gave away 600 backpacks with school supplies. The free community event also featured resource tables, food, refreshments, and fun activities, including face-painting, bounce houses, and music. In addition, the Smile Clinic provided free teeth cleanings to children. The event was sponsored by the Detroit Wayne Mental Health Authority, Family Alliance for Change, Youth United, and Southwest Solutions.
