MOTHER DOESN’T HAVE TO CHOOSE BETWEEN RENT OR FOOD

After losing her job and falling behind on rent during the pandemic, a single mother was contacted by her local Dispute Resolution Center through the Eviction Resolution Pilot Program. She had found a new job and was on her way to getting back on her feet and financially stable. She wanted to keep her home and keep a good relationship with her landlord, so she had planned to put all the money from her first paycheck to paying back rent, including money she would have used for groceries for the month.


Through the Eviction Resolution Pilot Program, she learned about her options, and instead of skipping meals on the family’s table, she worked with the DRC, her landlord and with legal aid to create a payment plan that fits with her income and keeps her in her home.
