Entre las actividades los miembros de la comunidad también pudieron hablar con un abogado de Inmigración, y una especialista financiera para ayudar a las personas y contestar sus preguntas. De parte de los Representantes de la Comunidad de Servicios de HDA le queremos dar las gracias en especial a Christian Mendoza (D20) y a Janelle Diaz (D20) por participar en este evento y hacerlo un éxito.
