Stabilizing families, stabilizing communities

Housing Stability Project

Working with impoverished families to save and improve their homes and community.

 

What is housing stability?

Housing is critical for every family. It provides safety, warmth, and security. Through stable housing, parents and keep their jobs, kids can stay in their schools, and families can improve their lives.

 

How can legal aid help?

Through legal advocacy, our housing team helps families get and keep safe, affordable housing and build equitable neighborhoods. Some areas that we help with include:

  • Evictions
  • Subsidized housing
  • Housing conditions and safety
  • Fair Housing rights
  • Landlord-tenant issues

No matter where you are in the process, you have rights as a renter. Our full booklet on renters' rights is here.

How does HSP work?

Clients can be referred through other community organizations, or can apply directly to Legal Aid for help. To apply, call our HelpLine or apply online 24/7.
