Eviction Prevention Project holds clinics twice a week — Monday and Thursdays — offering free legal help to people in court facing eviction, but it’s a program that’s been running low on funds.
Karen Fairbairn Nath, executive director of Legal Assistance of Olmsted County, said a $50,000 grant from Mayo Clinic used to kick-start the program catering to low-income clients has run out, but work continues.
Last week, Mayo Clinic awarded Legal Assistance of Olmsted County a $30,000 grant for its overall work, with at least $10,000 of the amount being used to staff the evictions clinic.
