Caring for Impacted Communities

We understand that many members of our community may be experiencing a range of emotions and challenges related to ongoing violence in the Middle East and elsewhere in the world. Our hearts go out to all those affected; our office is here to support you: More information and resources.  

Mold & Mildew in Housing

Condensation can lead to mold and mildew, so make sure you have continuous airflow within your space.

Do not panic if you find mold or mildew, it is most likely mildew rather than mold. Submit a ReADY request and staff will respond to your request accordingly. For more information on dealing with mold and mildew, please review this PDF: Mold & Mildew
