Counseling and support
-page 4 Lamplough-

A part of Gonzalez’s job and others’ at the Allston Brighton CDC is to provide counseling to families that are new to the area and are trying to find an apartment.

The Allston Brighton CDC helps families understand the contract agreements before they sign them.

“Sometimes people sign things without checking,” he said.

The organization also helps people understand their rights and in some cases goes to court with them.

“We provide counseling, we find code violations,” Gonzalez said.

Latinos en Accion is a committee developed in October 2002 by the Allston Brighton CDC that has identified many code violations such as the bedbug epidemic, Gonzalez said.

“Bedbugs is a huge issue,” he said. “We are in the process of informing people and advocating for change.”
