Keeping Immigrant Tenants Housed

In one recent case, St. Francis’ Immigrant Housing Justice Project negotiated with a local landlord to secure housing for 11 tenants who were behind in rent and at risk of eviction.

Because of this individualized advocacy, the IHPJ team was able to secure their housing.
