Folks need lawyers. They need to know their rights, and they need to know that someone's on their side in the fight to keep their apartments. If you or someone you know needs help, please consider the following "Walk-In" Clinics with Brookly Housing and Family Services (BHFS). It would be petty of me (would it not?) to call out the name "walk-in clinic' when it goes on to say "by appointment only." I suspect you can walk-in and make an appointment though! Thanks Jesse, for staying in the fight.
