Taking the Extra Step to Serve People Facing the Shortage of Affordable Housing in Indianapolis
Indianapolis Legal Aid Society (ILAS) was recently contacted by Lauren and her sister. The two sisters were sharing an apartment at the time and were facing eviction. An ILAS attorney aided Lauren through the eviction process. While she was not able to stay in the apartment, they were given the opportunity to voluntarily vacate. This voluntary vacate gave Lauren the ability to avoid an eviction on her record (When an individual does have an eviction on their record, it can be nearly impossible to be approved for another lease).

Once our attorney helped Lauren through the eviction process, she connected her with an ILAS social worker. Our social worker was able to assist Lauren through the process of finding a new place to live. Lauren, who is a functionally illiterate individual, expressed to the ILAS social worker that she was being dismissed by property managers and was also spending an excessive amount of money on application fees and not getting approved for places. Thankfully, our social worker was able to provide Lauren with housing lead search tips and guidance to better connect her with the proper resources. Lauren was finally able to find a new home and was very appreciative of our attorney and social worker.

Lauren's story is just one of many other Hoosiers who are struggling to afford the rising housing rates. ILAS is still looking to hire two attorneys to work on eviction cases. If you or someone you know has a passion for helping those in need of legal aid, apply for the attorney position HERE.
