Of all the challenges families face every day, few can be as lonely as those that involve depression or chronic behavioral problems. You’re afraid to talk about it. You think it’s your fault. You don’t even know where to turn for help.

That’s why Meridian Services organizes community outreach events like this weekend’s fourth annual “Fun Fair” in Muncie. For kids there will be lots of games, inflatables, face painting, basketball contests, dunk tank and prizes. For parents, it’s a chance to see the full range of services available at Meridian and to also meet with over 30 local organizations providing family, health and safety resources.

The Fun Fair will be from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the Suzanne Gresham Center, 3620 W. White River Blvd., just west of Muncie’s Westside Park. Free pizza, pretzels and drinks will be available while they last, and live music will be provided by Seth Cook of the “Cook and Belle” band.

Meridian Services offers health care for the whole person, integrating physical, mental and social well-being by offering primary medical care, behavioral health and social services for those in need.

The Gresham Center, a division of Meridian Services, is a specialized center dedicated exclusively to children and family services. Focused on making children’s lives better, the Gresham Center wants families and children to have a day dedicated to spending positive family time full of fun and enjoyment without the worries of money.

“Bringing together community partners to offer these valuable services is important to us in helping educate and promote positive parenting and family time, says Hank Milius, Meridian Services President/CEO. “Making it a fun and enjoyable day is just another example of our dedication to offering many unique services to children and families.

Meridian’s main offices are at 240 N.Tillotson Ave. in Muncie, next to Indiana University Health Ball Memorial Hospital just south of Ball State University campus. Find them on the web at
