The First Annual Fall Festival
Change Happens! is entrenched in the Third Ward and has an understanding of the community's needs. This year, Change Happens! hosted the first, on-site fall festival to provide our neighbors with an opportunity to fellowship, receive a meal, access resources and educational materials, and have some family-style fun! The inaugural festival brought out a festive crowd that enjoyed food trucks, a DJ, games, and an array of vendors. Ultimately, we were able to serve over 100 families.
