Housing Resource Fair a Success

Alderman Willie C. Wade and Alderwoman Milele A. Coggs sponsored a housing resource fair at the COA Youth and Family Centers and several hundred residents participated. Several key organizations were on hand to explain how they can assist with home repairs, home buying and foreclosure information. Organizations at the resource fair included: Habitat for Humanity, Select Milwaukee, Department of Neighborhood Services, Career Youth Development, Riverworks Development Corp., Wisconsin Housing and Economic Development Authority (WHEDA), Another Hand Foundation, Neighborhood Assistance Corporation of America (NACA), YWCA-NIP Program, Marine Credit Union, Safe & Sound, Harambee Ombudsman Project, Inc., Me2 Energy Efficiency program and Summit Credit Union.

“Bringing together available resources and making them easy to access for residents is one thing we can do to remain proactive and vigilant in the support of our neighborhoods,” Alderman Wade said. “Whether you need to prevent the foreclosure of your home or you’re interested in investing in your area, the city wants to help and information is the first step.” For more information about the Housing Resource Fair, contact Coretta Herring at 286-5812.
