PALMDALE – The City of Palmdale and the Housing Rights Center (HRC) have announced a change in venue for the monthly housing rights workshops.
Beginning this month, the HRC will host its workshops at the South Antelope Valley Emergency Services (SAVES) facility, located at 1002 East Avenue Q-12 in Palmdale.
“This truly is a great partnership for SAVES,” said SAVES Coordinator Patricia Morales. “The location is easier for residents to find and more conducive to what we’re trying to accomplish in terms of serving our customers.”
“We have a great relationship with the HRC and support its mission and services,” said Housing Coordinator Terri-Lei Wheeler. “Our partnership helps us connect with property manager and tenants so we can maintain the highest quality of housing options in our City. Through the HRC’s workshops, our landlords and renters receive education, get their questions answered and resolve many issues that potentially could arise.”
“The City of Palmdale is committed to ensuring all residents are treated fairly and in accordance with all housing laws,” said Mayor Pro Tem Tom Lackey. “We are proud to partner with the Housing Rights Center to ensure that all our residents—property managers and renters— have access to information pertaining to housing rights.”
The HRC Center is a nonprofit agency that works to help provide equal housing access to all residents in the communities it serves. The Center assists homebuyers, renters, tenants and housing professionals with free counseling services on fair housing law, public education seminars on housing discrimination and housing discrimination complaint investigation. The HRC hosts free walk-in housing rights clinics on the 3rd Thursday of every month in Palmdale at the South Antelope Valley Emergency Services (SAVES), 1002 E. Ave. Q-12.
