For many, losing a job or falling ill can lead to eviction and homelessness. That vulnerability is compounded in many low-income and Black and brown communities by systemic racism, disinvestment, and a scarcity of affordable and secure housing.
Housing resource centers maintain and build secure and safe housing by empowering tenants to advocate for their rights. Staff help residents navigate Housing Court, get critical repairs, and provide them with the tools and information to prevent evictions and homelessness.
This video shines a spotlight on the Center's work at one Housing Help Center in Harlem, which provided extensive outreach to the community during the COVID-19 pandemic, when many tenants were more vulnerable than ever.
As the COVID-19 pandemic and its economic impact surges across our country, now is the time to prevent evictions and keep families safely housed. With your support, we work side-by-side with communities to connect tenants facing eviction with needed services. Your donation will ensure people have access to the tools they need to keep their homes.
