  • HOPICS and St. Josephs are both working with undocumented people to assist them financially with rental assistance, food and supplies. They must prove they are behind on rent and at risk of being evicted. This is through the homelessness prevention program. The landlord should give a notice that they are behind and in danger of receiving an eviction for HOPICS and St. Josephs to pay their rent and they do not need to be documented so that’s the good news. https://www.hopics.org/ (323) 432-4399
