Organizations mentioned/involved: Southern Minnesota Regional Legal Services
Among the growing need is legal help through the Eviction Prevention Project, which Legal Assistance organizes and operates with the help of Southern Minnesota Regional Legal Services and Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota.
Lawyers working with the clinic represented 227 tenants in its first year. Of those cases, approximately 80 percent were settled, with nearly a third finding a way for the tenants to stay in their homes.
Sixty-four percent of all the cases ended without an eviction landing on the tenant’s record.
