Rental assistance brings landlord to tears

A landlord contacted a local Dispute Resolution Center about a tenant that was very behind on rent. The tenant was an immigrant. The landlord had also immigrated and did not want to evict the tenant because the landlord knows how hard it is to make ends meet. The DRC was able to help the tenant secure six months of rent assistance. The landlord burst into tears, grateful to not lose a tenant and to assure that the landlord would be able to keep up with property expenses.
