Eviction Prevention Training for Professionals

Have you ever struggled to help your clients keep their rental housing? Would you like to learn how to assist your clients who are at-risk of eviction as they communicate with their landlords during this difficult situation?

We provide critical training skills for professionals who want to assist tenants in maintaining housing stability.

In our 1/2-Day Eviction Prevention Training for Professionals, you will learn:

  • How to help tenants avoid becoming involved in an eviction proceeding.
  • The top 10 mistakes tenants make that often lead to eviction.
  • How to link tenants to community resources that are available in Central Ohio to help during a sudden/short-term housing crisis.
  • How tenants with past evictions or less than perfect credit can improve their ability to access decent/affordable housing, even in today’s competitive rental housing market.

Training session is from 8:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
