Description

The Eviction Defense Collaborative (EDC) seeks an enthusiastic Finance and Data Entry Assistant to join our team in fighting for tenant rights and preventing homelessness and displacement. Recently, EDC was named as the Lead Partner for San Francisco Tenant Right to Counsel. In this role, EDC will be designing and overseeing the implementation of tenant right to counsel. Only a select few cities in the United States have a universal right to representation for tenants facing eviction. As a temporary Finance and Data Assistant, you will play a key role in supporting the implementation of tenant right to counsel in San Francisco and at the forefront of the universal right to representation movement.


THE ORGANIZATION

Born out of a collaborative of a dozen non-profit providers and law groups, EDC provides legal assistance, advocacy and representation to predominately low-income and indigent tenants in San Francisco who are being evicted. Historically, EDC has been the first point of contact of approximately 95% of all tenants facing an eviction (unlawful detainer). Recently, EDC was named as the Lead Partner for San Francisco Tenant Right to Counsel. In this role, EDC will be designing and overseeing the implementation of tenant right to counsel. Only a select few cities in the United States have a universal right to representation for tenants facing eviction.


EDC has assisted these tenants by educating them about the legal process, advising them of their options, drafting responsive legal documents, providing referrals to assist them in fighting their evictions, negotiating legal settlements and representing them at trial. EDC also administers one-time rental assistance grants and loans through our RADCo program to help tenants who are behind in their rent to pay the rent and stay in their homes. The work at the EDC is made possible by a dedicated staff and many volunteers from local schools and the community. We are a collection of individuals passionate about advocating for tenant rights and preventing homelessness.


THE POSITION

The Finance and Data Entry Assistant will work closely with the Executive Director, Director of Operations, Finance Manager, Legal, RADCo and SCA department program managers. This position will aid the administration of EDC and responding to its obligations to the City of San Francisco. This position requires someone who is able to multi-task and switch gears seamlessly.
