Housing Workshop 101

Here is a copy of the flyer that you can print out or distribute to your co-workers.

We are starting our Housing Workshops for 2014.  We hope to have four this year.   These will help housing case workers learn more about the resources available to homeless people.  We will discuss the landlord tenant law and the fair housing laws.  We will talk about appeals and denials from subsidized properties, and how to better use HousingCleveland.org.   There are big changes in how homeless people access shelter and permanent supportive housing, and we will have the agency responsible for these programs present.  You must send in or drop off your reservation (with payment) at 3631 Perkins Ave. Suite #3A-3, Cleveland, Ohio 44114.
