Last Thursday, October 4, the Network hosted a training on Overcoming Tenant Screening Barriers at Holyoke Community College. Over 60 people attended from across the 4 Western Counties. Attorney Jane Edmonstone from Community Legal Aid offered an excellent training, which included this PowerPoint Presentation. I wanted to offer it to you all!
Attorney Edmonstone is happy to offer similar community based organizations to your own organization or a group of organizations on this topic. Feel free to contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org with an inquiry of this nature. To make an inquiry about an individual case, please go to this page on CLA’s website to find out the process.
Finally, Esther Darko, an attorney with Central-West Justice (a sister organization of CLA), also offered her assistance, especially in situations where housing applicants are suffering barriers as a result of being a victim of a crime (e.g., sexual assault or domestic violence). You can reach her at email@example.com or 413-727-7102.
Thanks to our partners in the legal community for their great work!
