Community Legal Aid Launches New Project to Curb Eviction Crisis
Community Legal Aid is offering a new program that will provide legal help to renters who are facing or fearful of eviction.
Legal Aid is providing an online toolkit that walks renters through the eviction process, helps prepare them for court, and provides template documents they'll need.
John Petit, managing attorney for Legal aid, said when a tenant receives a summons for an eviction hearing, he or she will also receive a flyer with the hotline number and Legal Aid's website.
"The idea is don't make people, tenants especially, go through the process alone. Give them the best shot to get rental assistance," Petit said.
