Updated: Jul 17, 2022

Houston Tenants Union helped the tenants of Acres Homes Garden Apartment deliver demands to Housing Corporation of Greater Houston.

Demand letter delivery by tenants of Acres Homes

Together, they decided to contact the Houston Tenants Union, an organization that coaches tenants on how to place pressure on landlords to make changes such as repairs. A few months later, they and other tenants delivered the demand letter. “Housing conditions need to be safe and they need to be secure, and when those conditions are not met, that’s something that needs addressing,” said Caleb Miller, the organizer at the Houston Tenants Union who is advising tenants at Acres Homes Garden Apartments.
