The Housing101 workshop is an opportunity to learn more about housing and sign up to use the HousingCleveland.org website. It is directed at staff working with very low income and homeless people including social workers, case worker, and advocates. One goal is to get more case workers signed up to use the Special Needs functions of Housing Cleveland.org. The other goal is to teach case workers about how to access fair housing, central intake and permanent supportive housing. Finally, the goal is to teach participants about the basic landlord tenant law.
We will have presenters from:
*Cleveland Tenants Organization the leading advocate for tenants in Ohio and an expert on the state and local landlord tenant law.
*Housing Cleveland.org affordable housing web site to sign social workers up to use the special needs functions.
*Frontline Services (Formerly MHS). staff will provide an overview of Central Intake and Permanent Supportive Housing and how to access these units.
*Housing Research and Advocacy Center will provide information on fair housing laws and how to assert your rights under the law.
*Dept. of Veterans Affairs staff will talk about their housing related services.
