In the struggle against slumlords, the Christian Activities Council, along with neighborhood leaders, have succeeded in taking on Emmanuel Ku. Residents will now be granted mobile vouchers to move to safer, sanitary housing. This is great news! However, over 150 families now have to relocate within the next 90 days. WE NEED YOUR HELP!
Many residents want to be paired with someone who will be a companion through this complex and daunting transition. We need volunteers with flexible schedules willing to attend housing authority meetings with residents, help fill out paperwork, and possibly drive residents to look at apartments. Spanish speakers greatly needed. Training provided. Connecticut Fair Housing, Open Communities Alliance, and Greater Hartford Legal Aid will provide technical assistance, but we need people like you to provide additional logistical support. Email Rev. Kari, firstname.lastname@example.org, if you may be able to help in this way or you can contact CAC directly at email@example.com or 860-527-9860 to volunteer.
