Richland County School District One and NAACP address housing crisis with free event on March 9

Columbia, South Carolina – To help solve the problem of affordable housing in South Carolina, the Richland County School District One and the Columbia Branch of the NAACP are putting on their third free housing clinic of the year. This program is meant to help parents and guardians of students in the district’s schools. It’s a ray of hope for many families who are having a hard time to find stability in their living situations.

The event will take place on March 9 from 9 a.m.

Set to take place on March 9, this clinic is one of several that will be held to addressing the direct correlation between a child’s home environment and their academic performance. The organizers of this clinic believe that every child needs a stable base, so they are offering free help with a range of housing issues. The clinic is a one-stop shop for people in need, offering everything from financial help to legal rights.

The clinic will open at 9 a.m. with a talk about tenants’ rights and evictions. These are important topics for renters who have problems with mold, broken fixtures, and damaged windows and doors that make their homes unlivable. People who go will also learn about their rights when landlords don’t follow HUD rules, when they are illegally evicted, and when there are problems with getting their security fees back. The clinic will also cover important topics like public aid, jobs, and foreclosures, making sure that the housing problems district families face are dealt with in a complete way.

Participation in the clinic is free, but you have to sign up first. Those who want to attend can either register online or scan a badge, which guarantees them a spot at this event. After the opening session, the clinic will be open from 9:30 a.m. to noon, offering direct services to attendees.

They will both run from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. and will help this important support network grow even more.
