Sheriff Jewell Williams hosted the first Council on Faith Based and Community Partnership Breakfast of his administration recently at the Deliverance Evangelistic Church at 21st Street & Lehigh Avenue.

In attendance at the breakfast on Friday, December 5th were priests, rabbis, and ministers from across the city who were given information on recent changes and services available at the Office of the Sheriff of Philadelphia City & County.

Close to 100 people of all faiths attended the breakfast that was catered by students from the Murrell Dobbins Vocational Technical High School right across the street.

“This event was held to bring people up to speed on the new technology we’ve introduced into the office, and to re-solidify a long history of service to the religious community”, Sheriff Williams said.

Members of the sheriff’s staff included representatives from the Real Estate, Law Enforcement, and Communications Division who gave an overview of each department and how the community can access services.

“Overall”, said Sheriff Williams, “the event was successful on several levels including, and most importantly, simply getting information out about how the Office of the Sheriff of Philadelphia City & County can help you (through seminars and workshops) avoid foreclosure and keep your home”.
