Housing Clinic

WATCH's Housing Advocacy Clinic is for tenants and landlords. Clinic staff will train you on your rights and responsibilities. We will help you walk through the process to resolve your housing problem, and refer you to additional resources as necessary, like fuel assistance, job search resources or food stamps. And after we help you fix the urgent problem you had, you are welcome to join with other WATCH members to fight for more safe and affordable housing in Waltham, by becoming involved in WATCH's organizing efforts. You can also learn more about the clinic by visiting the WATCH Housing Clinic page on the Brandeis University website. 

WATCH's Housing Advocacy Clinic is a unique collaboration between WATCH and Brandeis University, and works closely with the Boston College Legal Assistance Bureau. It is a free twice-weekly drop-in service established at WATCH in 2007 by Brandeis Professor Laura Goldin's community engaged learning classes and staffed by trained students who are supervised by Professor Goldin and WATCH's Executive Director. Although it is designed primarily to assist with fair and safe housing issues, it is often the first point of contact and a resource for community members needing other services and resources.

Do you have a question? Trained advocates can help you with:
  • Landlord & Tenant Conflicts
  • Threat of Eviction
  • Need for Home Renovation or Weatherizaton
  • Rent Increases
  • Apartment Searches or Tenant Searches
  • Poor Living Conditions
  • Filling out Public Housing Applications or other paperwork
  • General Housing Concerns
The clinic is open on:
