Housing Rights Committee

For 40 years, Housing Rights Committee of San Francisco (HRCSF) has fought for tenants rights when a group of seniors at Old St. Mary’s Church came together to organize against condo conversions displacing the elderly in 1979. Now, HRCSF offers free counseling for San Francisco tenants in all types of housing: rent-controlled units, SROs, public housing and Section 8, serving over 5,000 tenants a year. They have organize entire buildings to fight against displacement and evictions, change and support housing-related laws for a more fair San Francisco, help create building and community-wide tenants groups, mobilize protests and housing justice demonstrations, and advocate for tenants in Section 8 and public housing. Working with the Anti-Displacement Coalition, a network of tenant organizations and allies, together they organize against the soaring evictions and rent increases in San Francisco.
