OUR MISSION

TESTIMONALS

This organization has been God-sent to my family and I! I am currently going through legal action with my landlord, who wants us out to rent for more than double to others. This organization has helped me with the process and located legal representation to help me stay in my home in upper Manhattan.

Client Serviced

Pa'lante has helped me tremendously with my housing situation. I'm forever grateful for the work that they do. My apartment was infested with rats and mold. No other organization helped. Due to Pa'lante's hard work and dedication they helped me transfer to a newly renovated apartment. Pa'lante cares about tenants and they have my love and support.

Client Serviced

Pa'lante is extremely needed in West Harlem; a neighborhood in constant threat of having residents pushed out by unscrupulous developers and landlords. It continues to do its part in providing assistance and direction to the community.
