A party in a mansion Saturday will help spread the word about affordable housing.

Neighborhood Housing Services, whose aim is to help 500 families find homes during the next few years, is host to a 7 p.m. Workforce Housing Social at the Bradshaw Mansion, 609 Ingleside (11th) Ave. S.

All those interested in the agency's mission are welcome to attend, said Theresa McEachern, one of the organizers.

NHS seeks both monetary contributions and volunteers, she said.

"It is an opportunity for us to showcase and recognize the workers that make St. Petersburg a great place to live, " she said.

The 27-year-old organization seeks to help workforce individuals such as teachers, firefighters, police officers, paramedics, nurses and other health care workers, and clerks, for example.

Housing candidates also receive home ownership training, learn about down payment and closing cost assistance and explore special mortgage programs.
