Moving Past Evictions

‘Mary’ had been evicted and was denied for several market rate apartments when she entered into Associated Ministries Renters Readiness monthly course. She quickly learned the importance of honest communication to help build trust with property managers. Afterward the course, she applied for an apartment and was honest about her barriers. The landlord called the case manager to request support in ensuring that the family maintained a truthful and upfront attitude throughout the entire tenancy. Sara’s family was able to move in and has remained happily housed. “We were so scared to tell her the truth about that eviction, but you see, that’s why she let us in-- because we told her the truth.” -- Mary
