Garland Hosts Fair Housing Workshop for Tenants

When: Saturday, Feb. 15, 2013
           10 a.m. to 12 noon
Where: 232 Carver Drive, Bldg. 2, Garland, TX 75040

City of Garland’s Fair Housing Services Department will host a free workshop to provide an opportunity for participants to learn about their rights as tenants from a fair housing perspective.

This interactive meeting will teach strategies such as recognizing discriminatory housing practices, understanding a lease agreement, how to request maintenance, and avoiding or resolving landlord-tenant disputes. Many people are unaware of what their rights are, and assume they have no resources available to aid in situations that interfere with the ability to fully enjoy their housing choice. In addition, many of us are service providers and have clients and/or employees who could benefit.

The workshop will include light refreshments and an opportunity to win a door prize.
