NNI’s TENANT ADVOCATE PROGRAM
Building strong communities involves more than simply building quality homes. Community revitalization requires innovative, community-based solutions, patience and agility to keep pace with the ever-changing housing environment. Community development activities give residents and homeowners the opportunity to rebuild their lives and their neighborhoods.
The Tenant Advocate Program (TAP) utilizes community resources and works with tenants and tenant councils at NNI managed properties to support residents with programs that can improve their lives and their neighborhoods.
In an effort to provide our tenants with the best available resources, New Neighborhoods, Inc. has teamed up with established local and regional agencies with successful track records of providing a range of beneficial programs.
Three full time TAP coordinators work in close consultation with NNI Property Managers, encouraging and supporting tenants to TAP into their potential. TAP coordinators work one-on-one and with groups to connect NNI residents with programs that target self-sufficiency and life skills goals such as:
- Employment and Job Advancement
- Eviction Prevention
- Health Care Screening
- Credit Repair and Budgeting
- Home Ownership
- After-School Programs
- Aging in Place
- Neighborhood Improvement
