The Meridian Housing Authority is getting ready to launch its "Strong Family" Initiative and fun festival day.
The event is this Saturday at the meridian housing authority building on e-street from 8 a-m to two p-m.
M-H-A hopes the event brings the community together and aims to encourage fathers to be actively involved in their children’s lives.
The initiative helps families living in the affordable housing communities learn about the local resources available to them.
"There will be vendors at this initiative on Saturday under tents giving out literature and information regarding various opportunities for our residents and things that they can do to make sure and ensure that we have strong communities.” Said Ronald Turner, Sr. executive housing director
