Thank you for being our holiday angel. The kids were excited when I got home with milk, eggs and butter
as they were excited to make cookies! "

THANK YOU to Niagara Community Foundation for the $500 grant which allowed our client services coordinator to attend Rentsmart Train the Trainer! This opportunity has increased our knowledge about the do’s and don’ts about tenant/ landlord relationship and it has also given us the tools needed to educate and empower our clients on how to foster and develop good landlord/tenant relationships when securing permanent or temporary housing.
