Disability Resource Fair - Hillsboro School District - Thursday the 2nd of November
Disability Resource Fair

We would like to confirm your participation at this year's Disability Resource Fair. This will be a time for parents with students who experience disabilities and staff from the Hillsboro School District to learn more about your organization! This will be a booth-style setup at our District Office. We will have two sessions, one for our staff and the other for our families. We will also need a 2-5 minute presentation (if you have it in both English and Spanish that would be great) submitted by Wednesday the 18th of October (to secure translation if needed) for all families who are not able to make it to the fair but would benefit from the information.

Our Resource night is Thursday the 2nd of November.
our first session will be from 4:30 p.m. – 5:00 p.m., and
the second session from 5:30 p.m. - 7 p.m. with a 30-minute break in between.

We have had great turnouts in the past and both parents and staff appreciate the information.
If you have any questions, feel free to reach out.

Please send Fernando or me a confirmation email so that we know you will be joining us.

What is The Portland Metro Community Resource Network?
The Portland Metro Community Resource Network (PDX CRN) is a community engagement platform that focuses on firming up safety nets and expanding opportunities.
The CRN aligns services, connects resources to fill unmet needs for community members, and accelerates impact by utilizing private sector innovation, leveraging public sector resources and mobilizing social service networks.

How does it work?
The CRN is comprised of public bodies, non-profits, for-profit businesses, tribes, and individuals. When a member becomes aware of a need it is posted on the CRN. No personally identifiable information about the client is listed, just the basics about the need. The CRN uses custom matching to only notify those members whose profiles match the need. CRN Members contact the requester directly to coordinate details. The CRN platform connects resources to needs in the local community.

CRN Members Can
Create a custom profile and select service/need categories and locations of interest to them.
  • Share resources or goods.
  • View and fulfill requests from other CRN members.
  • Seek resources for unmet needs.
  • Gather quarterly to celebrate CRN successes and view real-time community data.
  • Provide input to add new functionality and improve the CRN.

The CRN is a free online tool for organizations to share resources and/or unmet needs. You might use the CRN to:
  • Share resources or goods. For example, you could share surplus school supplies with those in need. CRN members can arrange pick up or delivery directly.
  • Seek resources for unmet needs. For example, you are working with a family and encounter a service gap. You could use the CRN to try and fill their unmet need.
  • Share service-oriented information. For example, you are conducting a health fair. You could use the CRN to promote this event to those members interested in this area.
