BCDC Tenant Organizer Services

BCDC’s Tenant Organizer, Bonnie Bastien, is available for questions around any of BCDC’s programs or resources provided on the Renter Resources page.

If you are a renter, you can also reach out with any issue you might be having with your landlord, including:

  • issues with housing vouchers,
  • assistance in applying for rental assistance,
  • an eviction notice

She can provide some resources, referrals to other services, and moral support. Sometimes just having someone hold space to listen to what you are dealing with is helpful. That information is important for us to know at BCDC so that we can keep track of the issues happening in Brookline.

Bonnie is also available to assist groups of tenants interested in forming a tenant union. She also organizes with tenants across Brookline to advocate for relevant public policy change and to build community in Brookline.

Contact information:

Bonnie holds drop-in office hours on Wednesdays and Thursdays between 10-5pm in our office at 210 Harvard Street (The United Parish Church).

If these hours don’t work for you, please feel free to contact her to set up another time. Weekend hours may be possible.
