THOUSAND PALMS – Coachella Valley residents can apply in person for utility assistance, rent assistance for households financially impacted during the pandemic and county programs that they qualify for, and receive help with tax preparation and find other resources that can assist their families, at a pop-up resource fair in Thousand Palms tomorrow.
The Fourth District Resource Clinic will be held outside the Thousand Palms Community Center in Thousand Palms, 31-189 Robert Rd. from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday, April 22.
Supervisor V. Manuel Perez is coordinating this resource fair to bring outreach to the communities and link residents to county programs and community resources.
“Events like this are so important because many times individuals are unaware of services that are available and, for this reason, don’t access them,” said Supervisor Perez. “I am grateful to all the county departments and nonprofits that are part of this pop-up resource fair and are reaching out to our communities to make sure more people know what they do and to make a positive difference for local residents.”
Participating agencies include: the Barbara Sinatra Children’s Center, the Community Action Partnership of Riverside County, Catholic Charities, Desert Recreation District, First 5 Riverside, Lift to Rise, the Riverside County Department of Public Social Services, the Riverside County Office on Aging, SunLine Transit Agency, and more.
For free tax preparation, register for an appointment via email, SVirgen@rivco.org or call 760‑863‑8213.
Supervisor V. Manuel Perez represents the eastern two-thirds of Riverside County on the Riverside County Board of Supervisors. Stretching from Palm Springs and Desert Hot Springs, south to the Salton Sea and east to Blythe and the Colorado River, the 4th District is the largest geographical district in the county.
Supervisor Perez’s office hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
