Rent RIte are classes now available!
If you've had a hard time getting into rental housing, are curious about your credit and how to repair it, and/or want to learn more about fair housing in RI, then this class is for you!
The Housing Network of Rhode Island (HNRI) has developed a new FREE class series designed to help people get and keep rental housing. The HNRI has partnered with community development corporations like us all around the state by training AmeriCorps members serving under the Accessing Home Initiative to teach the Rent RIte classes. This year Kristine Pearson, our Resident Services Coordinator, is teaching our classes.
Some of the topics covered in the Rent RIte classes are:
How to apply for rental housing
What a lease really means
The importance of good credit, and how to repair yours
Tenant and landlord rights and responsibilities
How to resolve conflicts with your neighbors
Fair housing laws
The class meets for 2 hours a week for 2 consecutive weeks, from 5:00-7:00pm on Tuesday evenings in the conference room at Church Community Housing Corporation, 50 Washington Square, Newport RI, 02840. Registration is required.
Contact Kristine at firstname.lastname@example.org or via phone at 401-846-5114 ext 114 to register.
The next class series will start on Tuesday June 26th and will be completed on the following Tuesday on July 3rd.
Participants will recieve a free credit report and score pull and a certificate of completion, proving your commitment to responsible tenancy. The certificate will be awarded upon completion of all assignments and 2 classes are attended.
