Dear friends and neighbors,
I encourage all community members to take advantage of free housing assistance through our partnership with the Crown Heights Tenants Union (CHTU) and the Urban Homesteading Assistance Board (UHAB), tomorrow on Friday, March 24, 2017 from 2:00PM to 5:00PM by appointment. Tenant Leaders and Organizers will help families and individuals improve their housing conditions by knowing their rights and accessing resources to assist them through the housing process.
It is imperative that families who are looking to start a tenants association, struggling with rent, facing landlord issues, or in need of repairs like heat or hot water to take advantage of the opportunity to assist individuals with issues first hand. Also, if you are in housing court, inundated with legal documents or lease materials that require demystification, people will be on site to help guide you through this process.
Take advantage of the opportunity to obtain answers from Tenant Organizers in regards to tenant inquiries, and receive resources and direction to address various issues.
In order to schedule an appointment with a housing counselor, you may reach out to my office as follows: (718) 771-3105.
