Mission & Values


The Eviction Defense Collaborative strives to prevent homelessness, preserve affordable housing, and protect the diversity of San Francisco. We work toward these goals by providing emergency rental assistance and by helping low-income tenants gain equal access to the law in order to assert their rights at court.


  • Equality, respect, and social justice
  • Safe, healthy, affordable housing is a human right
  • Equal access to the law for all, regardless of any social, economic, racial or physical distinction
  • San Francisco is a better, more dignified city when people from diverse backgrounds, including the disabled, the working poor, minorities, and low income families can afford to make the City their home
  • High quality services that empower clients and staff through open communication and respect for cultural difference
  • All people should have power to know and assert their rights and to make their voices heard
