Providing Emergency Rental Relief to those affected by COVID-19

(December 1, 2021) Since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, La Casa de Don Pedro has worked tirelessly to connect our communities to the resources and information they need to stay safe, prepared, and informed for whatever may come.

We have partnered with the City of Newark and State of New Jersey’s Emergency Rental Assistance programs to educate our community about how to avoid eviction and apply for financial assistance, whether from state, city, or La Casa’s own funds. In October alone our team helped save 200 households from eviction.

If you or someone you know is in danger of eviction, please contact us at 973-485-0701, or visit us between 10am-4pm at 317 Roseville Avenue.  To prevent an eviction due to a Covid related hardship, households MUST self-certify by December 15th. Otherwise they will not be protected under New Jersey’s eviction moratorium. 

For more information on the variety of Emergency Rental Assistance programs, please visit our Coronavirus Resource Hub or follow us on social media @lacasanwk.
