The event included health screenings, a job fair, live music, food, children’s activities and information on services for persons with disabilities. Display booths were staffed by nonprofit and for-profit entities.

Proceeds benefited Moving With Hope, a Shelton-based nonprofit organization that provides independent skills training and nutrition programs to individuals with disabilities and their families.
