The King County Bar Association has joined with United Way of King County and Seattle Mariners to launch a $3 million community partnership to help tackle King County's homelessness crisis by reducing the number of people who lose their homes due to eviction, which is a leading cause of homelessness.
Home Base works to keep thousands of people facing eviction in their homes by:
- Providing legal representation through scaling King County Bar Association’s volunteer attorney program, the Housing Justice Project, which helps low-income clients facing eviction.
- Making flexible funds (provided by the Mariners and administered by United Way) available to clients to pay the back rent causing the eviction.
- Offering the guidance of a caseworker to prevent the person or family from facing eviction again.
KCBA is recruiting new volunteer attorneys to assist us with this program. Click here for more information about how to volunteer with our Housing Justice Project.
This program will begin in early 2019; watch this space for more information.
Special thanks to our Home Base partners!
