Safe and affordable housing is a basic right that many of our clients do not have access to. Building an independent future is almost impossible when facing eviction, landlord harassment, or housing-related health issues. That’s why we’ve helped thousands of New Yorkers stay in their homes.

By providing free legal, development, organizing, and weatherization assistance, we help our clients remove the obstacles that keep them from enjoying more housing security.
