We offer free tenant rights counseling for San Francisco renters (phone numbers below) and are one of a few organizations in the city that does so for both private and subsidized housing tenants, including public housing, low-income housing and and section 8 tenants. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, our offices are closed and all counseling is being done via phone. We have stayed committed to helping all tenants fight for their rights since 1979!
