Note - Landlord and Tenant Resource Center
- Please note that due to a high demand for services, it may be necessary for the Resource Center to limit the number of customers it sees each day and close intake before 12 noon. Even if intake is closed early, all customers who have court dates that day or emergency matters (for example, a live writ, lock-out, or no heat) will be seen if they sign in before 12 noon. The Resource Center will, whenever possible, provide written materials and referrals to customers who cannot be seen that day.
