Help Atlanta tenants understand their rights – and take an active part in the fight for equal justice.
Located in the Fulton County Courthouse, the Housing Court Assistance Center (HCAC) is a walk-in advice clinic for Atlanta tenants whose landlords are taking them to court.
At the HCAC, tenants can get immediate advice about the eviction process. With the help of an AVLF staff attorney, volunteer attorneys and law students meet with tenants to explain their rights under Georgia law.
“Volunteering at the Housing Court Assistance Center was amazing, and it feels so good to help out people that are in need of assistance during such a traumatic time.”Erica Dumes, HCAC Volunteer
“If I could financially afford to quit my full-time job to volunteer with AVLF, I most certainly would. The joy on citizens faces who have been helped is indescribable. I leave each session feeling humbled that I was able to help someone less fortunate than me.”Sherel Rele, HCAC Volunteer
