Renters’ Rights Hotline Training (Part 1)

Saturday, June 17, 1 p.m. – 5 p.m., Community Alliance of Tenants, 2714 NE 14th Ave. Portland, OR 97212

By far our highest demand from tenants is seen on our Tenants’ Rights Hotline. We answer hundreds of calls a month from renters in crisis and our need for more volunteers to meet that need is ever-expanding. Hotline volunteers require a special amount of training and therefore we ask for a 6-month commitment at 4 hours per month for those willing to take on this community need.

Usually, two training sessions are required. To RSVP or learn more, write to Tim.
