Thomas suffers from many health issues, including bipolar disorder. The manager of his apartment complex served him with an unwarranted eviction notice after false rumors began circulating about him in the complex. Thomas had nowhere else to live and didn’t know what to do. Thomas’ housing advocate referred him to legal aid, and a legal aid attorney represented him at the eviction hearing. His attorney explained that the rumors were not true and that, given Thomas’ medical situation, it would be discriminatory to evict him. The judge ruled in his favor and he was able to stay in his home. Thomas said, “I would have been out on the streets if I didn’t have the help of legal aid. With all of my health issues there’s no way I could have survived.”
