Alliance for Shelter seeks landlords


Daily staff report

The Shenandoah Alliance for Shelter recently received a grant to help combat and prevent homelessness. The agency plans to use the $3,500 award from the Shenandoah Community Foundation to launch its Landlord Luncheon Series, according to a news release issued by the Alliance on Tuesday.

The agency will use the grant to develop a network of landlords willing to work with homeless and near-homeless households. The Alliance also will host free, quarterly luncheons to keep landlords apprised of resources available to their tenants, give landlords an opportunity to tell the agency about issues common among tenants and to network with each other.

Program Administrator Kerry Keihn states that landlord participation makes an impact on the Alliance's effort regardless of how many rooms or units they rent. The network reduces the amount of time households experience homelessness and prevent homelessness for other. Participation also increases the amount of grant-funded rental assistance Shenandoah County may receive.

The first luncheon is scheduled for Aug. 28 and is open to landlords currently working with the Alliance or those interested in joining the network. Landlords interested in attending should RSVP by Aug. 14. The location has not been chosen. The Alliance asks that anyone interested in renting to its clients contact the agency at 459.3212, sassc@shentel.net or sased@shentel.net.
