The AA Thompson Center in Southeast Raleigh is hosting a 4 day workshop for the popular Ready to Rent program.
Ready to Rent provides participants with the information and resources to gain approval to rent safe and affordable housing. While 15 participants have already registered for this event, there is still room for 5 more.
Instruction will include information regarding landlord rights and responsibilities as well as tenant rights and responsibilities. We will cover budgeting and savings tips. Finally, participants will learn how their credit is scored. This is an important step towards repairing credit, as they will find out which accounts to begin with. Some participants find that some accounts can be removed for free, while others discover which negative accounts they should focus on first.
The Ready to Rent workshop series also partners with area landlords who participate in the program. Wake County Supportive Housing currently links qualifying applicants with more than 80 housing communities located throughout Wake County, many of which specialize in lower income requirements, subsidized rent and second chance credit programs.
Monday through Thursday, April 18-21, 2011 from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm.
AA Thompson Center, 567 East Hargett Street, Raleigh, NC 27601.
Preregistration is required. A $25 fee may be paid to Wake County Supportive Housing which is due along with a completed application. Please contact Sharon Gibson with Wake County Supportive Housing at 919-856-5277 to register.
