Fitzgerald to host housing conference and job fair

PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 16 – State Rep. Isabella Fitzgerald, D-Phila., announced she will host a housing conference and job fair for constituents of the 203rd Legislative District.

The events will take place from 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 28 at the West Oak Lane Charter School, 7115 Stenton Ave., 19138.

Fitzgerald said constituents can attend workshops on various aspects of home buying and ownership, including how to obtain good credit, tangled titles and reverse mortgages and more.

“Everyone should have the opportunity to become a home owner, so it’s crucial they get as much information as possible,” Fitzgerald said. “This event will provide some great tools for those people thinking about buying a home in order to help them make informed discussions.”

Fitzgerald added there will also be a job fair with dozens of employers looking to hire.

“I encourage everyone to bring copies of their resume and dress to impress,” Fitzgerald said.
