Report from the Job Fair

I stopped by the Builders of Hope job fair in Hoffman Triangle this morning shortly before noon. 

By that point in the day, in the church's Fellowship Hall, over 60 people had already stopped by and filled out applications for jobs in the construction trades.

Apparently, at least 20 people were lined up at 9:40 a.m. before the fair even opened.

Catholic Charities was also onhand to take applications for a variety of additional jobs beyond the house-moving-related jobs that Builders of Hope has in play.
