If I am evicted, can I get into a shelter?
If you are being evicted, you may be able to get into Emergency Assistance shelter for families. You must have a child under 21 or be pregnant. You must also meet income guidelines.
The rules for getting into an Emergency Assistance shelter are strict. Talk with a legal services lawyer or volunteer lawyer at the court before you sign any agreement. You want to make sure the agreement does not hurt your chances of getting into shelter.
