Public Classes in the Community

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

Even though 70+ agencies teach the Rent Well course, most agencies only have the funding to teach 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. It is possible that they do. You can see a list of all the agencies that are current Community Partners here.
