Main supporters included Boston Community Capital, The Private Bank and RE/MAX. Other participating agencies included Patricia Gutierrez Pascual’s Law PC, First Midwest Bank, Second Federal, Northwest Side Housing Center and Pinpoint Mortgage. 

Operation H.E.L.P. also participated at the “My Wellness, My Community Fair” June 25, at Erie Neighborhood House. The fair provided community members with wellness resources, educational workshops, health screenings and housing resources.
