Can you answer questions about the potential family to assist with the screening process?

Yes. To some degree, we can give you information about the family statistics and if they are in compliance with their obligations under our housing program. If you want information about whether they pay their rent on time or cause property damage, etc., you must contact their current and/or previous landlord.
