Free Help Finding – and Keeping - Good Tenants

 At Catholic Charities NY, we care as much about our relationship with landlords as we do with our clients.  Why?  Because good landlords provide the quality housing New York families need to thrive.

So when we find good landlords, we offer them as much help as we give the low-income folks we helped finding affordable housing in New York. And in this city, that means a lot of help!

Here are our Top -7 advantages for landlords who work with us at Catholic Charities:

1) Smart” Renters

Our clients attend training on key topics of interest to you including

  • Budgeting
  • Understanding rent agreements
  • Housekeeping and apartment maintenance
  • Being a good neighbor

2) Eliminate Advertising Costs

Working with our program gives you access to a pool of ready-to-rent tenants.

Just call us up when you have a vacant unit and we’ll immediately match you up with a client looking for housing.

3) Damage/Security Deposits

Catholic Charities aims to help people get back on their feet. We found that many low-income clients can afford the monthly rent but have difficulty saving enough money for their security deposit.To cover this cost, we help clients – AKA your future tenants – apply for HRA security deposit vouchers.

4) Access to Housing Subsidies

We help our eligible clients apply for housing subsidies to help pay their rent.

5) Regular Home Visits to Stop Problems Before They Start

Our case managers conduct regular home visits to ensure our clients – your new tenants – are:

  • Stabilized in their new environments
  • Their jobs are going well
  • They receive support they need. 

These regular follow ups allow us to identify and address issues early before they become big problems.

6) Neutral Party to Mediate Problems

Despite best efforts, problems are sometimes inevitable.However, when problems arise, it is reassuring knowing there is someone to call.We need everyone to make our program work.The job of our case managers is to serve as a neutral party, ensuring everyone is treated fairly and that problems are resolved quickly and impartially.

7) Satisfaction from Helping Others

Everyone deserves a safe, affordable place to live.Some people make mistakes but everyone deserves a second chance.By helping house our clients, you play an integral role not only helping individuals take charge of their lives but also in making your community a better place to live.
