Colorado Legal Services has implemented a remote help system at the El Paso County courthouse for people with eviction questions. In room W-163, people can freely walk in and use the computer that is set up. They can use the Teams app on the computer to reach out to a paralegal via video chat and/or audio call. See the flyer for more information.
Colorado Poverty Law Project is a Denver-based organization that connects low-income individuals with free legal services to fight evictions and housing injustice. They also offer a monthly free legal clinic and know your rights seminars.
The COVID-19 Eviction Defense Project is a collaborative, community legal project. Our mission is to provide Coloradoans who are unable to pay their rent during the COVID-19 crisis with information and support.
Residents are invited to “Renter's Rights 101”, a FREE online informational session, where participants will learn about a wide variety of topics such as lease basics, reasonable accommodations and modifications, deposits, repairs, eviction, and updates on recent Colorado legislation on housing matters.
This event is brought to you by the City of Colorado Springs, Colorado Legal Services, the Justice Center, and PPLD. Visit the link above to register. Participants will be emailed a MS Teams link after they register.
