Housing Rights

Our Focus

Home is the place where we lay our heads down at night, find comfort, and care for our loved ones. We provide culturally and linguistically competent assistance to low-income tenants and defend the rights of San Francisco tenants, many of whom are from immigrant communities, seniors, or living with disabilities.

We advocate for local and state policies that preserve housing, create affordable housing options, and decrease inequities in housing and land use. We also engage in community education and outreach.
