Public Classes in the Community

The classes listed below are open to the general public. Please note that some agencies may charge a minimal fee. This list is updated as instructors inform the Rent Well Program of upcoming classes, so check back often.

Although there are  70+ agencies teaching the Rent Well course, most agencies only have the funding to offer the course to their current or past participants. If you are working with a non-profit, case manager, or social services agency, feel free to ask them if their agency teaches Rent Well courses. You can see a list of all the agencies that are current Community Partners HERE.
