      Are you interested in helping tenants who are having problems with their housing needs?  Do you have 2 - 3 hours per week that you could spend serving the community in need?  If so, please contact Megin McDonell at mmcdonell@... or 257-0143.  For housing counseling questions, please call 257-0006.  We'll train you! 

      VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!  Be a Volunteer Housing Counselor for the Tenant Resource Center!
      After our recent funding cuts, your time is needed now more than ever!!

      TRC is seeking people who are willing to make at least a one year commitment to volunteer on a weekly basis as housing counselors. Learn to help others solve their rental housing related problems! Volunteer housing counselors help staff our housing information line and assist walk-ins with their rental housing questions. Training is provided on the basics of tenant and landlord rights and responsibilities. The typical volunteer commitment is 3 to 5 hours per week, between the hours of 9:00 and 6:00, Monday through Friday.

      Great for retired professionals, law students, social work students, and political science and urban planning students looking for non-profit experience, but ALL are welcome!

      **Please note:  I'm in the process of switching to gmail, so you can delete the "yahoo" address and brendakonkel@... instead.  My tenantresourcecenter.org (TRC) and prodane.org (PD) addresses are still best for matters related to those two organizations.  And my district2@... address is still best for City business.
