Tenants Rights Counseling
The Tenants’ Union Education Program helps tenants to 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.
