Housing and Economic Rights Advocates (HERA)

HERA is a California statewide, not-for-profit legal service and advocacy organization dedicated to helping Californians — particularly those most vulnerable — build a safe, sound financial future, free of discrimination and economic abuses, in all aspects of household financial concerns.

We provide free legal services, consumer workshops, training for professionals and community organizing support, create innovative solutions and engage in policy work locally, statewide and nationally.

We offer pre-unlawful detainer assistance to tenants and homeless residents in addition to legal help addressing illegal rent increases, failures to reasonably accommodate, and more.
