Strengthening Partnerships for a Better Community

Yesterday HomeAgain invited community landlords to discuss innovative housing solutions. Industry expert Grimes Creasy, partner at Johnson, Ayers, and Matthews, led the discussion on recent changes to the Virginia Residential Landlord Tenant Act. The changes covered critical topics like eviction policies and late fees.

Landlord partners are a vital component of HomeAgain’s two community-based housing programs: Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) and Rapid Rehousing (RRH). PSH provides long-term assistance for families that have experienced chronic homelessness, have children under the age of 18, and an adult with a disability. RRH offers short-term rental assistance to individuals and families during the transition from homelessness into housing.

Fostering positive landlord-tenant relationships is critical to finding long-term housing solutions. Through partnerships with Capital One and Housing Opportunities Made Equal (HOME), HomeAgain provides clients with the tools and resources for a positive long-lasting renting experience. Collaborating on housing efforts not only strengthens HomeAgain’s impact on clients, but the Greater Richmond community as a whole.
