IMPORTANT NOTE FOR HOTLINE CALLERS WITH FAMILY LAW ISSUES: Family law intakes are only conducted Tuesday – Friday during regular hotline hours. Applicants with non-family law related issues can apply for assistance Monday – Friday during regular hotline hours.

IMPORTANT FOR RENTERS: A new federal law called the CARES Act provides protection from nonpayment of rent evictions for tenants in Section 8, public housing, and any housing with other federal government involvement. You may not know it, but your property might be covered by the CARES Act and provide you with important rental protections.
