Working with and engaging landlords is the topic of this month’s Ask Me Anything session.
Working together with property owners is an important part of maintaining stable housing for individuals who experience barriers in accessing housing or are at risk of eviction. Landlords can have a variety of concerns about tenants, agreements and expectations. Finding successful engagement strategies that focus on communication and support can lead to a partnership that is beneficial to all parties.
