Community Housing Clinic
Dec 6 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

The Office of Housing Stability’s Community Housing Clinic is a tremendous resource for residents — tenants and landlords — to talk one-on-one with a housing professional about landlord-tenant laws, learn how to access affordable housing opportunities and discover housing resources available to landlords and tenants. Tenants can learn about their rights if their building is sold, their rents are rising or they’re facing eviction. Landlords can get information on enforcing lease provisions, cost-effective resources to resolve disputes and programs to support home repairs and maintenance.

Community Health Education Center – Harm Reduction
Dec 8 @ 9:30 am – 3:30 pm

Harm Reduction provides an opportunity for clients to make changes in their behavior that lowers risk and reduces negative consequences instead of waiting to choose to be abstinent from drugs or sex. The harm reduction approach can help providers to effectively meet their clients “where they’re at.” Almost all people practice some type of harm reduction in their lives. This training will focus on ways to use harm reduction principles when discussing risky behaviors with clients.

Registration deadline is Dec. 5, 2018. For more information
