Volunteering & Internships
Tenant Advocate – Saint Louis
Tenant Advocates are trained in Missouri Landlord/Tenant law and have resources to advise, counsel and refer callers who are experiencing a housing crisis. Tenant Advocates help tenants understand their rights and obligations under state and federal laws. They help draft letters for tenants, assist people in searching for housing, and identify resources which may help a person out of a housing crisis. Tenant advocates are volunteers who are able to devote at least 2 hours a week to counseling tenants.
