Review for Palante Harlem Inc, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My name is Karen and I am an intern in P.A.’L.A.N.T.E Harlem. This was my summer job that I got through the SYEP Program directed by Catholic Charities.When I first heard about it, it seem very interesting because they help people with housing issues. I have always liked to help people in my community so I was really excited about it. At the beginning, I was really nervous because it was my first job. But the staff would always be helping you and supporting you. I worked all summer at P.A.’L.A.N.T.E Harlem. In the summer we did canvassing. This organization does a housing conference each year. This is very important for the tenants because you get a lot of information referring to housing like the New rent laws that protect more tenants, what to do in case your landlord is harassing you or if you need any repair to be done in your apartment. I think I had one of my best experiences at the housing conference because everybody knew about us and were grateful of how P.A.’L.A.N.T.E Harlem changed their life.This is a really good organization that helps tenants against landlord abuse and harassment. Also, they care a lot about the people and try to do day by day a better community. This organization changed my life. After the summer I stayed working at P.A.’L.A.N.T.E Harlem. I am so grateful for the opportunity that they gave me. Now, I’m learning more about housing and doing my best to help my community. P.A.’L.A.N.T.E Harlem
