CommUNITY in Housing Event - March 1

Thursday, March 1 @Prairie Street Brewhouse

11:30a – 1p

Keynote Speaker: Mayor Tom McNamara

HomeStart will be hosting a luncheon on Thursday, March 1 in partnership with the City of Rockford, Winnebago County Health Department and Prairie State Legal Services. The event will bring housing professionals together to discuss why resourced neighborhoods of choice are important for the whole community, and how keeping all of our citizens in safe, stable housing affects our crime rates and educational success. Mayor Tom McNamara will be our key note speaker, focusing on strong neighborhood agenda items for 2018, and how this audience can advocate and advance change for all income levels.

Representatives will be on hand from the City of Rockford’s Homebuyer Advantage and Focus Area Rehab program, the Winnebago County Health Department’s Creating Lead Safe Rockford program, Prairie State Legal services, and HomeStart’s home purchase and foreclosure prevention programs. To attend, RSVP by calling Cassidy at 815-962-2011 by 5p on Monday, February 26.
