Each year, in October, Bradford-Tioga Head Start, Inc. hosts two resource fairs one in Bradford County and the other in Tioga County. These  events are created to bring parents and county agencies together. During the events agencies from each county provide an overview of the services they offer. They then meet with families individually to discuss in more detail how they can work together. This event is also a time for agencies to network and learn more about what other supports there are in the communities they serve.

This year, Resource Fairs were held for Tioga County families at the Mansfield Fire Hall while Bradford County families were invited to the Troy Fire Hall. Seventeen agencies and 42 families attended the event held in Tioga County; thirteen agencies and 57 families attended the event held in Bradford County. Some of the agencies in attendance included Domestic Relations, YMCA, Representative Clint Owlett Office, TreHAB, WIC, Early Intervention, North Penn Legal Service, AmeriHealth, PA Career Link, Bradford Tioga Housing Authority, Parent to Parent just to name a few. Families enrolled in the Bradford Tioga Head Start, Inc Programs and Bradford Tioga Head Start Staff.

The Resource Fair provides an opportunity for agencies, staff, and families to work together toward strength-based interactions. These partnerships support parents' roles as valued community members and their progress toward their goals for themselves and their children. Community partners provide tangible child development supports and resources that families and staff want and need. The resources include parents' educational advancement, economic mobility, and other aspects of family well-being.
