  • First Congregational Church - UCC 700 Poyntz Ave `Manhattan, Kansas 66502 (map)

Join us for some yummy eats, excellent company and empowering yourself to have a quality rental experience. Meal provided and kids welcome!

This renters rights workshop will focus on what you need to know about security deposits. Learn what you need to do to ensure that you get your security deposit returned fairly based on Kansas law.

We will also have a Q&A time to help renters troubleshoot current difficulties they may find themselves facing.

Paul Shipp, an attorney from Kansas Legal Services will give the presentation and help answer renter questions.
