Random Things . . .

So hard to keep up with everything going on, so here’s some things on my mind!

I’m involved in many organizations and often find myself competing with myself – so here’s some things going on you might be interested in! My world’s are colliding in this post . . . I usually keep them more separated!

Giving Tuesday
TRC and Giving Tuesday! – Today, Tuesday, November 28th, Community Shares will waive the credit card fees for ALL ONLINE DONATIONS made to their member nonprofits through our online giving portal at bit.ly/Give2CSW. Tenant Resource Center is a member!

Like the workplace giving campaigns, 100% of all gifts will be passed on to our designated member nonprofits. Learn more about CSW’s nonprofit members and their incredible work: bit.ly/CSWMembers

Tenant Resource Center is hiring for two different positions! If you’re looking for a job that pays at least $15 an hour, where there is never a dull moment and you help people with the most basic of needs – housing, then this is the job for you. It will make you laugh, it will make you cry, but you will know that you are making a difference. We will teach you the tenant-landlord law, so don’t worry about that – you just have to be good with working with people, a great diversity of people . . . did I say, never a dull moment!


Be part of a ho-ho-homegrown solution to homelessness this holiday season! The OM Build – OM Village Tiny Homes: Occupy Madison, Inc holiday sale and silent auction will run:

* Sunday, December 3 from 11 am to 2 pm

The sale will feature a wide variety of unique holiday gifts made by OM residents and volunteers, plus a two-day silent auction with fabulous items from Art Gecko Shop, The Century House, Willy Street Co-op, Main Street Yoga, A Room of One’s Own Bookstore, Change and more!
