What areas of law does the CSC-MLP help with?

The goal of the CSC-MLP is to provide services that: 

  • Reduce the risk of homelessness, or 
  • Help clients become more housing ready. 

We accomplish this goal by helping clients avoid evictions, obtain public benefits, increase their credit scores, and more. See below for examples of the types of cases we help with. 

Our advocates assist with applying for public benefits such as Social Security, Medicaid, and SNAP (food stamps). We can also provide advice to those who have been denied benefits.

Our lawyers provide legal information and representation in evictions, landlord-tenant disagreements, requests for accommodations, housing discrimination cases, subsidized housing issues, unlawful detainers, ejectments, reverse mortgage foreclosures, mortgage foreclosures, and more.
