Richland One families who are financially struggling and/or facing problems with their homes can receive free assistance.

In partnership with the Columbia Branch of the NAACP, the district will hold five free housing clinics from January through May. Families can get guidance on habitability issues such as mold and broken fixtures, illegal evictions, utility assistance, public benefits and more.

A special housing clinic that will start with an information session on evictions and what tenants’ rights are will take place March 9 at Eau Claire High School (4800 Monticello Road, Columbia, SC 29203). The information session will be held from 9 a.m. – 9:30 a.m.

To participate in the clinics, you must have at least one child attending a Richland One school.
