I am in need of assistance. My current landlords are forcing the tenants out of our complex to do major renovations which will render the units uninhabitable. I have been frantically searching for a new place to live, but being physically disabled, it is even more difficult to find accommodations to meet my special requirements to live in an accessible unit.

Important Information

Legal Aid Funding
Legal aid professionals and organizations oftentimes receive government funding for taking on cases with those who cannot afford attorneys. For the most part, funding is limited so legal aid entities can only take on a limited amount of cases. Qualifications are often rigid.
