Eviction Intervention Program
Volunteer Lawyer Program Eviction Clinic flyer

Just Neighbors Eviction Intervention Program (EIP) has staff at the Allen County Small Claims court for all Eviction Hearings. The EIP staff work with any tenant facing eviction to help them navigate the eviction process while also connecting them to services to help them remain housed when possible. This may be mediation with the landlord, connecting tenant to a free attorney, connecting the tenant with agencies that provide emergency rental assistance, etc.

If you would like to speak the EIP staff regarding your eviction you can meet with the staff when you attend your initial hearing at court or you can attend one of the twice monthly eviction clinics with VLP.
