Pilot Tenant Education Program a Great Success!

In addition to the holidays, residents at Maritime Apartments in Bath, Maine had one more reason to celebrate - "Graduation!" In December, participating residents of the HUD-assisted development completed the six-module course entitled "Renting and Residential Living Made Easy."

The course was conducted by Maritime's Resident Service Coordinator. Topics included fire safety, money management, decorating in small spaces, stress/time management and a review of lease requirements.

The primary goal of the program is to assist residents in achieving and maintaining a successful residency. The secondary goal is to provide an opportunity for residents to meet some of their neighbors and to connect with their Resident Service Coordinator and/or Site Manager. Each module reinforces the common and secondary goals through awareness, education, skills building, resources and support.

Childcare was provided for each of the 90-minute sessions. Residents who attended all six sessions were entered into a final drawing for a grand prize of $500 cash and a second prize of $200. All "graduates" received gift cards. Just in time for last minute holiday shopping!
