Mission Statement


Tenant Resource Center is a nonprofit, membership organization dedicated to promoting positive relations between rental housing consumers and providers throughout Wisconsin. By providing information and referrals, education about rental rights and responsibilities, and access to conflict resolution, we empower the community to obtain and maintain quality affordable housing.

Description


The Tenant Resource Center provides information and resources to tenants, landlords, and other agencies seeking advice for rental situations. The TRC depends on the help of volunteers. As a volunteer Housing Counselor, you would be trained in housing law and then interact with our clients in person and over the phone to answer their questions. The typical volunteer commitment is 3 to 5 hours per week, between the hours of 9:00 and 6:00, Monday through Friday. Great for law students, social work students, political science and urban planning students looking for non-profit experience; retired folks from a variety of professional backgrounds and workers with flexible schedules, but everyone is welcome. Housing counseling is a unique volunteering experience-far from humdrum envelope stuffing; you get the opportunity to interact with our clients in a much needed and meaningful way. We look forward to having you here.
