Tenants Rights Counseling
The Tenant Education Program helps tenants get the knowledge and skills to keep themselves and their families safely housed. The TU provides empowerment-based tenant counseling, education and assistance to help tenants learn their rights and take action to resolve housing problems. Trained non-attorney Tenant Counselors offer free phone and walk-in tenant counseling services to assist people with questions about landlord-tenant laws and discuss strategies to prevent housing loss.
