Renter Workshop

Renter Workshop

Are you rent wise? Our free Rent Wise workshop will teach you the keys to successful renting, including:

  • Household budgeting
  • Impacts of credit and rental history
  • Fair housing practices
  • Landlord perspectives
  • Your rights and responsibilities
  • Finding and getting into rental housing

Rent Wise workshops are taught by a certified financial counselor and other professionals in the community who volunteer their time by providing expert instruction on a range of topics. The class material has been developed based on national curricula from NeighborWorks America and national best practices for rental education models.

These three hour workshops are free and open to the public. Refreshments are provided. Check the Calendar for upcoming classes. See the Agenda for more class information.

Registration is required, but there is no cost to attend. Complete the Household Registration or the Individual Registration.

Vouchers are available for free offsite childcare during class. Please call (406) 532-4663 if you are interested in childcare vouchers.

Homeword is firmly committed to providing access, equal opportunity, and reasonable accommodation. Please call  (406) 532-4663  to request accommodation or to obtain materials in an alternate format, or dial 711 (TTY).
