How can we help you?

PLEASE NOTE: There are important changes to the eviction process, court procedures, and EDC’s services due to COVID-19. If you have an existing eviction case, court closures most likely mean that your court dates and deadlines have been postponed. To learn more about the 90-day stay of Unlawful Detainer cases and details about San Francisco’s 30 day halt to residential evictions, start here.

Hay cambios importantes en el proceso de desalojo, los procedimientos judiciales y los servicios de EDC debido a COVID-19. Si usted tiene un caso de desalojo existente, el cierre de la corte probablemente significa que las fechas de corte se han pospuesto. Para obtener más información sobre la estadía de 90 días de casos de retencion ilicita y detalles sobre la detención de 30 días de San Francisco para los desalojos residenciales, comience aquí.

請注意:因為COVID-19病毒造的緊急情況,逼遷訴訟的過程,法庭的運營,和EDC的服務都有很大的變化。如果您現在有逼遷/驅趕的案件,因為法庭目前關閉,您的上法庭日期最有可能推遲了。如果想更了解舊金山的30天逼遷停止和逼遷案件的90天的推遲,請點擊這裡 start here.

    Our Work Through the Stories of Our Community

    San Francisco's Housing Crisis

    San Franciso is ground zero of the national housing crisis. Cost of rent has skyrocketed in San Francisco in recent decades, but income has lagged far behind. More than 75% of San Franciscans have historically been renters, and yet over 50% of families in the Bay Area are considered to be “rent burdened,” paying more than 30% of their income in rent.

    Since our founding in 1996, EDC has been the leader in innovative, direct service responses to our housing crisis. We were one of the first organizations in the nation to combine rental assistance; legal assistance in an eviction; and advocacy for shelter clients, all under one roof. In response to the growing number of evictions and victims of the housing crisis, San Franciscans voted to become one of the first cities in the nation to guarantee legal representation to any tenant facing eviction (regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, income, or any other distinguishing criteria). EDC was selected as the lead partner for this project, Tenant Right to Counsel, and we are proud to work with our partner Legal Service Orgs (LSOs) to implement Tenant Right to Counsel for San Francisco in 2019 and beyond.
