Gilroy families needing assistance can visit a temporary one-stop center from 10 a.m. to noon Wednesay, June 1 at 7800 Arroyo Circle, Suite A.

County residents also can attend fairs Wednesday, May 18 in San Jose and Thursday, May 26 in Sunnyvale. Residents who want more information can contact the office of public affairs at 299-5119.
