Mission Statement


The mission of the Metropolitan Tenants Organization is to educate, organize and empower tenants to have a voice in the decisions that affect the affordability and availability of safe, decent and accessible housing.

Description


MTO operates a tenant rights hotline, organizes tenants in buildings and across common tenant issues, and runs a Healthy Homes program to prevent children from lead-based paint poisoning. On our tenants rights hotline we counsel tenants on an array of issues including tenants that have been locked out of their apartments, tenants whose buildings are in foreclosure, and tenants who have major repair issues and even utilities shut off. We work in the City of Chicago and throughout the entire county of Cook.
