Like all grassroots organizations, Housing Rights Committee depends on volunteer help to provide the many services we make available to tenants throughout San Francisco.
do many great jobs--xeroxing, collating, mailings, data
entry, etc. One of the most important jobs is tenants
rights counseling, advising clients who walk in the door
or call for help. Tenants' problems range from illegal
rent increases and evictions to lack of repairs and
non-return of security deposits. We do not provide legal
counsel, so you don't have to be a lawyer to be a
counselor. Volunteers are trained and given a handbook
to help them learn about tenants rights protections.
If you're interested in volunteering and being part of our exciting volunteer team, call Tommi or Stephanie at 415-703-8634 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
