On Tuesday evening, August 1, our Family & Children Services of Silicon Valley (FCS) division participated in two National Night Out events held in San Jose.
National Night Out is an annual event that recognizes the role we all have in building neighborhoods that safer, more caring places to live. Across the country, more than 38 million people and 16,000 communities came together to build and enhance relationships in their neighborhoods. San Jose hosted several events, and FCS was thrilled to have a presence at the gatherings at both St. James Park and Emma Pursch Farm Park.
We appreciated the opportunity to connect with neighbors, share information about our services, discuss community concerns, and hear from speakers, including Mayor Sam Liccardo.
