Alderwoman Milele A. Coggs is inviting city residents to attend a housing resource fair tomorrow (Saturday, November 9) from
10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. at LaFollette School, located at 3239 N. 9th St. Sponsored by Alderwoman Coggs, in conjunction with the City
of Milwaukee’s Neighborhood Improvement Development Corp., the event aims to help people facing foreclosure, or those who are in need of
assistance when it comes to home financing, housing repair assistance and other home renovation issues.
“I hope residents will take advantage of the people, organizations and resources at the event,” Alderwoman Coggs said. “I am
very much looking forward to engaging residents as they take part in the workshops and as they examine possible resources that can help fulfill
their housing needs.”
Several key representatives from various organizations around the city will be on hand to answer questions and assist residents
with home resources. A few workshops that will be available during the fair will include “Facing Foreclosure 101” at 10:30 a.m., “Home Repair
Resources 101″ at 11:30 a.m. and “How to Buy a City Property” at 1:00 p.m.
