  • Legal Aid Addresses the Housing Crisis

Communities throughout Oregon are struggling with an unprecedented housing emergency. Urban and rural communities can experience this in different ways, but common problems include: lack of affordable housing stock, rising rents, discrimination, and habitability issues. Lack of access to safe and affordable housing leads to homelessness and human suffering.
Oregon’s legal aid programs are implementing a multi-faceted approach to help clients who are being hurt by the affordable housing crisis. Legal aid provides web based materials, public education, advice, limited services and representation. If you are interested in learning more about legal aid's work in this area, please contact us.
