Get Ready, Get Set, Get Housed!






Here are a few resources that you can use to search for housing. Visit the YMCA Center for young adults for a calendar of classes and information sessions on Housing!



It’s also important to prepare for your housing search. Depending on your housing barriers, it may or may not take a long time to find the right housing. Here a few things that may assist you in your search:


  • Understand the barriers that may disqualify you from different housing facilities and find solutions to resolving barriers (ex. Repairing poor credit, making payment plans for eviction debts, resolving charges on criminal backgrounds, etc.)
  • Prepare to take time off of work or school if needed to tour housing facilities
  • Create a budget and housing timeline with your resource specialist to assure success in your housing search



This month, We’re focusing on learning our rights as tenants within Washington State!


HOT TIP OF THE MONTH: Know Your Rights!

There are Fair Housing Laws that your county and state have put in place to assure fair treatment when renting housing. Here are some basic rights that you need to know as a tenant in the State of Washington.

· It is illegal to deny housing to a tenant because of their race, color, sex, religion, disability, family status, or national origin


· The landlord has to give at least a 24 hour notice that they will be entering the unit


· The landlord has to make necessary repairs before the tenant moves in

· You can break your lease if your apartment violates any heath or safety violations


· Fair housing laws prohibit harassment based on race, color, sex, religion, disability, family status, or national origin
