Council Hosts Housing and Eviction Workshops


In Franklin County, nearly 18,000 eviction notices are filed each year making the eviction court the busiest in the state. Staggering statistics, such as this, led Councilmember Jaiza Page to prioritize affordable housing and keeping families in their homes.

To help provide resources for residents, Councilmember Page, The Legal Aid Society of Columbus and Columbus Next Generation are hosting workshops to discuss information and assistance on housing and evictions. 

“Education is vital to help tenants understand their rights and responsibilities. These workshops will help prevent families from losing their homes,” said Page.

Topics covered include:

  • Eviction notices
  • Available rental assistance program(s)
  • Tenant rights
  • Landlord responsibilities
  • Escrow services

Seating is limited to the first 25 registrations and must be reserved one week prior to the event date. To register, call (614) 259-7069 or email: info@columbusnextgen.org
