LSS to offer workshop for renters

Keys to Successful Rental Living, a three-hour workshop that will be offered by Lutheran Social Service (LSS) to help individuals learn how to be successful renters, will take place Saturday, March 5 from 9:00 a.m. to noon at the Center for Changing Lives in Minneapolis, located at 2400 Park Avenue.

The class, funded by Minnesota Housing, is free and childcare is also available. Pre-registration is required one week in advance of the workshop.

“While the class is designed for first-time renters and people who have barriers to renting such as evictions, everyone can gain something in their efforts to be a successful renter,” explained Lory Perryman, housing manager for LSS. “In fact, 99 percent of the 300 participants who filled out evaluations after this workshop reported that the class had helped them to be a better renter.”

Classes are taught by LSS staff who have experience with affordable housing, tenants’ rights, property management, leasing documents, tenant/owner communication, conflict resolution, and inspections to assure safe and decent housing.

The workshop will also be offered at the Center for Changing Lives in Minneapolis on June 4 from 9:00 a.m. to noon. For more information, call 612/879-5250.
