Successful Relationships for Housing for Homeless Households and Social Services Clients

Education Offering:

“Successful Relationships for Housing for Homeless Households and Social Services Clients”

The Rapid Rehousing Partnership Partner, a program of Coordinated Care Services, Inc., in collaboration with The Monroe County Department of Human Services,  is pleased to announce the availability of a free educational workshop for landlords and property managers, “Successful Relationships for Housing for Homeless Households and Social Services Clients”.  The first offering of this workshop is scheduled for:

The United Way

 As part of the community’s efforts to eliminate homelessness, a Rapid Rehousing approach is being used more and more to quickly move households from homelessness to stable permanent housing. The Rapid Rehousing Partnership Program provides the needed support for both the households moving into permanent housing and the landlords who are renting units for our clients. This new workshop offering is aimed at providing landlords and property managers with the information needed to have positive working relationships and experiences with the Department of Human Services, our Rapid Rehousing Program and other programs in the community and their tenants.

 Topics to be included in this workshop are:

  • Rapid Rehousing Supports for Landlords and Tenants
  • Renting to Temporary Assistance Clients
  • Landlord Statements
  • Direct Rent Payments
  • Property Violations
  • The Landlord Tenant Security Agreement and Improvements in Claims Process

Participation is open to the community. We hope that you are able to attend. These sessions are scheduled on a regular basis; please let us know if you are interested in attending a future session.
