Community Alliance of Tenants


To educate and empower Oregon tenants to demand safe, stable and affordable housing.

Bottom Line for Portland

Since 1996, CAT has counseled more than 45,000 calls on its renters’ rights hotline, educated more than 3,000 tenants and tenant leaders with its renters' rights workshops, and counseled more than 100 tenants through letter-writing clinics and an evictions-counseling program.

"Fantastic people helping the ones that are struggling and don't know the laws that are there to protect tenants. Thanks for your help battling crooked landlords and just simply doing the right thing." —Ken Thompson
