Many individuals looking to take Rent Well have been denied housing multiple times and come to this class to figure out how to get past that. Some individuals are working with case managers who enroll them into the class while others may be first-time renters who’ve never read their lease agreement before and want to be prepared.

Rent Well students not only learn tools to help them maintain stable housing in the future, they also get to see a copy of their rental background report, similar to the one a landlord would see and base rental decisions on. Students also create a personalized housing portfolio to present to potential landlords and provides them with more information about their background and strengths. Lastly, eligible graduates get to offer potential landlords the opportunity to register a Landlord Incentive Program which is paired with the Rent Well graduation certificate.
