I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and is looking forward to an exciting New Year with EPIC. As you all know, January marks JOB READINESS MONTH for EPIC. Our next meeting is Thursday, January 26, at Aria Health’s Frankford Campus from 5:30 – 7:30 pm in the 2nd floor conference room.

Joseph Douglas from Impact Services will be giving a short presentation on their community employment and training programs as well as their Re-Entry services for ex-offenders. Erica Smith from Philadelphia Parks and Recreation will have information on their new Yard Tree Initiative and how residents can sign up to receive a FREE yard tree. Dwight Leevy, our DHS Liason will have information on the 2012 SCOP grants and application process. We will also discuss our upcoming meetings and initiatives leading into the Spring. I hope to see you all there!
