“This is a valuable service provided by our legal partners. Too often, tenants are unable to obtain simple legal advice that would improve their housing circumstances. With the Tenant Tuesday Housing Clinic, they will be able to actually meet with an attorney to discuss their particular situation and receive sound advice. I was very pleased that our legal experts were so enthusiastic and willing to participate,” Coleena Ali, Manager of Tenant and Landlord Services, said.

“Toledo, like many Cities across the country, is transitioning to a majority renter population. More than 50% of Toledoans are now tenants. This means we—as a community—need to rethink the services, education, and support we provide to uplift Toledo, George Thomas, CEO and General Counsel at The Fair Housing Center, said.
