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 or visit our event page.
