Where we live: Hamburg


Housing Opportunities Made Equal [HOME], a civil rights organization with a focus on housing issues, will conduct monthly office hours in the Town of Hamburg starting Wednesday.

The open office hours are intended to give residents an opportunity to ask questions about fair housing law, or landlord-tenant relations. A counselor will be available to answer those questions, and provide paralegal counseling and reference materials for both tenants and housing providers.

All information provided by HOME is confidential and free, due to the support of the Community Development Department.

Office hours will be from 3 to 5 p.m. the first Wednesday of the month at the Community Development Department at 6122 South Park Ave., next to Town Hall. For more information, contact HOME at 854-1400, Ext. 22.
