We provide one-to-one counseling to delve into the details of affordable housing, ranging from exploring the rights of tenants and landlords to understanding the barriers that can automatically disqualify you from subsidized or market rate housing. We’re here to help coordinate available services and your housing needs so you can concentrate on your family, your work or educational goals.
