Check out these services and many more in this October newsletter:

Rent Smart virtual classes are now available in the fall. Are you looking for a new place to live? Rent Smart can give you tips on finding affordable housing, strategies on building

positive relationships with landlords, and responsibilities/rights of landlords and tenants. Did you know if you go though this class, you get a year of positive rental history?   Many landlords use the Rent Smart certificate to determine if you would be a good tenant. See page 3 for more information.

Salvation Army Seasonal Assistance has started! Please see page 7 if you are in need of Coats for kids and/or the Toy Store.
