Low-income residents facing eviction still have help

Getting evicted from your home stinks – especially when you’ve been a reliable renter and cannot afford the cost of moving to a new place.

Fear not, San Franciscans.

The City’s Human Services Commission recently approved a three-year, $1.7 million grant with the Eviction Defense Collaborative to help keep low-income residents from becoming homeless.

Each year, the collaborative says it offers more than 5,000 tenants facing eviction in The City emergency legal services and rental assistance.
