Tenant Advocacy

Organization: Central American Resource Center

CARECEN acts as a liaison between city agencies and tenants. CARECEN assists tenants in solving housing and health code violations while preventing displacement and abuse. Tenants become familiar with housing laws and regulations and learn how to take advantage of existing laws or advocate for changes in current policies. In many instances, CARECEN facilitates testimonies by tenants before the City Council, DC Courts, and other officials.
