The MVTC is a tenant-centered movement comprised of a diverse range of people who have in common a desire to protect renters' rights and to fight for the human right to housing for all. Our mission and goals are as follows:
For questions concerning local rent control and just cause protections call the city's Rental Housing Helpline (the name of the Oridnance is Community Stablization and Fair Rent Act). There are also Walk in office hours at City Hall in the Public Works Front Conference Room (500 Castro Street) each Thursday between 12-2 pm. Habla español.

Now filing with police and Federal/Stae/Local authorities to protect wife whose condition is bad that facing premature pacemaker replacement.On a good week, she is fully functional 2 days.
Pets hide in fear!! from noises. Vets concerned.
Police really powerless.
Today I had my court case for an eviction notice. I'm on Section 8, a disabled single mom receiving Social Security with a 16 year old daughter. I received a 60 day notice from my landlord for no reason. (During my annual inspection, Section 8 said if I'm in a month to month, he doesn't need a reason. I had voiced my concern to her as I was afraid I was going to be kicked out, and I was right). Section 8 corrected him and told him he needs to give me 90 days notice, so he did. I was not behind on rent at all, and have been in this 2 bedroom apartment for 7.5 years.
Our Emergency Assistance program is designed to provide vital resources to clients in crisis. Our case workers assess each situation and determine immediate needs, whether that comes in the form of providing temporary shelter or one-time emergency financial assistance to help pay rent or PG&E bills for the month. Each client is assisted with household budgeting to help plan for a future of financial independence.
