Montgomery Housing Fair
Posted by katieschmahl on October 6, 2009
Last Saturday, thousands of people in the Silver Spring/Gaithersburg area came out to the Montgomery County Housing Fair in Bohrer Park. There were over 90 vendors from all different aspects of housing offering: free credit reports, banking information, rental and legal assistance. IMPACT had a booth right at the entrance to the fair and we got to talk to lots of people about the Neighbor’s Campaign and gave out over 100 flyers directing people to the Neighborhood Service Center in Gaithersburg! Many people we talked to were not aware that there was a service center so close by! They were excited to tell their friends and family about it. We also connected with about 10 people who were interested in door knocking in their neighborhoods.
