Local nonprofits provide support for local landlords with September 13th training event

Friday, August 31, 2012

Thursday, September 13, 2012, 6-8 pm, Shoreline City Hall, Featuring YWCA, Community Psychiatric Clinic, Hopelink

On September 13, 2012 local housing organizations will provide a brief training to support local landlords and property managers in reducing tenant turnover and filling vacant units.

Rental unit vacancies, tenant turnover, and other tenant problems all impact a landlord’s bottom line. These issues can be time-consuming and costly. Fortunately, there are important community resources available to help protect a landlord’s bottom line.

The September 13 training event will help landlords know where to turn to help tenants in crisis stay in their home and provide an overview of two critical programs that can help landlords fill vacant units.

YWCA Seattle-King-Snohomish Counties and the Community Psychiatric Clinic (CPC) operate homeless prevention programs that provide case management, vocational assistance and even rental assistance for tenants who might have lost their jobs and are in financial crisis. They can provide 24 hour crisis response to certain tenants who are in personal crisis, and they can work with landlords to house good tenants like veterans and families who need housing while providing extra support to the tenants and the landlords that rent to them. 

Since its inception in 2009, The YWCA’s Landlord Liaison Program has worked with private landlords to successfully house 1,050 formerly homeless individuals and families.  CPC works to house homeless veterans and to provide veterans the support they need to stabilize their lives after serving our country.

If you own or manage rental property and are interested in learning more about these programs and other available resources, contact: Kelly Rider at the Housing Development Consortium of King County, 206-682-9541 and plan to attend their event:
Event Title: Support for Local Landlords: Protect your bottom line by filling vacancies and preventing turnover.

This event is sponsored by the North King County Housing and Homelessness Workgroup, with support from United Way of King County. To find out more about this Workgroup, visit their website.
