The Housing Court Assistance Center (HCAC) is a walk-in advice clinic for Atlanta tenants whose landlord is taking them to court.
At the HCAC, tenants receive immediate advice about the eviction process (which in Georgia is known as a dispossessory). With the help of an AVLF staff attorney, volunteer attorneys and law students meet with tenants to explain their rights under Georgia law.
HCAC provides tenants with the knowledge and resources they need to advocate for themselves throughout the eviction process.
“Citizens visiting HCAC are not left feeling helpless. They know that they have skilled and trained volunteers assisting them for free. AVLF gives the citizens that visit the Housing Court hope.”Sherel Rele, HCAC Volunteer
