The Human Services Department, Youth and Family Services Division, will be collecting new children’s bicycle helmets. These helmets will be given out during a Tree of Hope annual event hosted by Compassion Network. It is expected that 30 to 40 children will need bicycles, and providing each bike recipient with a helmet for safety would be ideal.
The City of Fremont Human Services’ Youth and Family Services (YFS) Division along with many communities across the country is celebrating National Children’s Mental Health Awareness during the month of May. The goal of this annual national initiative is to explore how communities can increase access to behavioral health services and support for children, youth, and young adults who experience mental or substance used disorders and their families.
In support of this campaign, City of Fremont Human Services' YFS, Fremont Unified School District, and Kaiser Permanente welcomed all FUSD students to participate in a Student Art Contest. Students created their masterpiece and are helping to promote Mental Health Awareness through the theme "Sharing Feelings and Hope," illustrated through Drawing, Painting, Collage, Sculpture, Poems and Writing.
