San Francisco’s affordability crisis has left many in the SFUSD educator community with limited options for both rental and homeownership opportunities. HomeownershipSF and Eviction Defense Collaborative utilize our integrated services partnerships to connect educators with the Mayors Office of Housing and Community Development housing assistance programs, legal services and eviction defense.
We will be hosting Housing Clincis for San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD) educators.* Educators will be able to drop in at any time during clinic hours and receive free support and connection to resources for their individual housing needs, such as application support, financial capacity services and housing counseling via HUD approved nonprofit services providers and attorneys. Service areas include:
Rental Counseling: Access information about Below Market Rate rentals, home sharing and other affordable rental programs.
Home Purchase: HUD approved counselors connect you with Below Market Rate homeownership opportunities and downpayment assistance such as the Teacher Next Door program and other assistance for you to buy your first home.
Eviction Defense: Legal guidance and advice to help you respond to landlord issues and legal notices.
Landlord/tenant Support: Legal guidance to help you navigate through landlord/tenant situations.
