how many of the 70 who signed up, were landlords/management co.s etc
Stefanie TO Stoops
40:36
How many of the individuals who agreed to be housing partners actually followed through and rented to refugees? How many have continued to do so over time?
Helen Sweitzer
42:31
Would you be able to share the content of your presentation so we don't have to reinvent the wheel?
Emanuel Dukes
43:21
did you all speak with landlords about the up keep of their properities
Robin Johnson
45:11
Question: Can you offer a successful sample statement that can be given to landlords who refuse to rent to refugee's on the basis of they will not violate the fair housing act by renting to our clients who do not meet their leasing criteria - IE - no social security number and will not make 2.5 income to rent at time of signing lease? Thank you -
Robin Johnson
50:54
is the top slide available as a pdf? (on session structure content slide)
Michelle Rivero
54:38
Did you ask invitees to bring up questions along with the invite/before the session so you'd have an idea of what concerns/questions people had?
Darla Berger
01:01:26
Did you use or are you aware of any incentive programs? IE: fund to pay for damages, if any and/or stipend for "successful" rental relationship.
Emanuel Dukes
01:04:34
How was the media emplemented?
Charity Stowell
01:05:08
How can we apply for new VISTAs? In the past we were told if we didn't have VISTAs then it would be impossible to get one.
Emily Yaffe
01:05:18
Were any of the new 50 landlords "corporate landlords"? We are experiencing a massive increase of buyouts from national property owners.
Emily Yaffe
01:05:53
ooo thank you for the resource packet!
Ayman Fadel
01:06:00
No refugee resettlement agency is active in our city. How can we use the information presented here?
Daniel Hannaher
01:07:01
Persistent problem of landlords requiring guarantees or co-signers on leases for refugees; unemployed and with no credit history. Any creative solutions?
Kate Paarlberg-Kvam
01:07:23
@Daniel, around here we have had churches or community orgs be the co-signers.
Anne Scheid
01:07:30
Is Pittsburgh currently experiencing affordable housing shortages? How do you compete with U.S. born citizens who also need affordable housing?
Alain Mentha
01:07:39
Ditto the question about cosigners and guarantors
Mark Demers
01:08:52
Anne Sheid - your question is very timely.
Kate Paarlberg-Kvam
01:13:16
It’s also (I think) good to frame this as a fight for more affordable housing, across the board, for everybody. It’s not just a struggle for refugees, it’s a struggle for the rights of workers
Emily Yaffe
01:13:24
I think the conversation should be less about competition and more about recognizing that affordable housing is essential to address for so many populations. It adds to the toolbox to advocate for more programs to protect affordable housing.
Emily Yaffe
01:13:44

Allegra Elson

Thank you. Very informative!

Market rate is often not affordable for refugees
Mark Demers
01:14:54
Amazing that refugees are able to pay fair market rate while folks with vouchers are limited by HUD caps.
Kate Paarlberg-Kvam
01:14:54
Market rate isn’t affordable for ME! :)
Caleb Gates
01:15:05
We sometimes resettle large families (8-10 family members), and finding housing for families that large can be very difficult because of occupancy rules. Finding any apartments with 4+ bedrooms can be very difficult. What strategies or tips for working with landlords to find housing for large refugee families?
Robin Johnson
01:16:32
Can the top left slide on the resettlement process with the great graphics on the screen titled Session Structure Content be made available to us? It looks to be very well done!
Robin Johnson
01:17:27
We have a family of 12 coming soon...….help!
jane dixon
01:19:12
Do local ordinances limit # in an apt- because...many cultures sleep in large numbers in a common space
Anne Scheid
01:19:57
HUD has a number limit per bedroom for apartments. Often landlords have limits as well.
Anne Scheid
01:20:56
thank you to those who do not work for the resettlement agencies for your passion and welcome of refugees resettling in the Pittsburgh area
Robin Johnson
