We offer free tenant rights counseling for San Francisco renters and are one of a few organizations in the city that does so for both private and subsidized housing tenants, including tenants in public housing, low-income housing, and section 8 units. We have stayed committed to helping all tenants fight for their rights since 1979!
IF YOU’VE RECEIVED AN UNLAWFUL DETAINER (COURT PAPERS), YOU NEED TO CONTACT THE EVICTION DEFENSE COLLABORATIVE by calling (415) 659-9184.
Please call our counseling lines (numbers below) and leave a message. Please state your name and number slowly, so we can return your call. A counselor will return your call during counseling hours (dependent on location). The call will be from a blocked number.
Counseling is available in Cantonese, Mandarin, Spanish, English and Russian. We do NOT accept counseling questions via email.
