Housing Rights Committee is a tenants rights organization that offers free counseling for San Francisco tenants in all types of housing, including rent-control, public housing and Section 8. We’ve been fighting for the rights of tenants since 1979 when a group of seniors at Old St. Mary’s Church came together to organize against condo conversions that were displacing the elderly. Housing Rights Committee counselors provide help to over 5,000 tenants a year, advising them on their rights as renters.
We offer both call-in and drop-in counseling Monday through Thursday, 1-5pm, 703-8644, 417 South Van Ness/15th (NOTE that this is a new address). We also answer questions emailed to us via this website.
We have a dedicated staff of volunteer counselors trained to help tenants identify their options when they’re having problems with evictions, illegal rent increases, repair problems, the return of their security deposit, etc.
The information above can be found on the official website of Housing Rights Committee of San Francisco. For more details about the organization and to find out how you can volunteer, please visit their website: http://www.hrcsf.org
