Dragons raise awareness about Human Services

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — The Dayton Dragons hosted a fair Sunday to raise awareness about Montgomery County’s Human Services and how the agency helps people.

People attending Sunday’s game between the Dragons and Great Lakes could stop by more than 30 booths.

Free information was handed out on available programs ranging from alcohol and drug abuse, to mental health, to children and elderly services. Officials were also on hand to talk to people about the Human Services Levy on the November ballot.

If passed, officials say the owner of a home valued at $100,000 would pay an additional three dollars per month.

“These are absolutely critical services,” stated Joe Tuss, Montgomery County Administrator. “They provide a broad range of services to the citizens. And this levy makes up over half of all the dollars that goes to provide human services to those 50,000 residents in Montgomery County.”

Voters will decide on the Human Services Levy on November 4th.
