“Adrian was faced with mental and physical health issues & a housing crisis, and he contacted our outreach office at The Access Centre for support. The most urgent issue was a landlord dispute & legal advocacy to not lose his RV pad rental.

Due to him having some mobility problems, Brittney and Donna made a site visit to meet Adrian at his RV to gather evidence and information to further understand the whole situation. They referred him to the Access Poverty Law Program for help to dispute the eviction notice. The dispute was successful and the final result was that he didn’t lose his housing.

Brittney and Donna also provided emotional support and connected Adrian with appropriate healthcare and social supports. After struggling along without any support for so long, Adrian was very grateful and his mental and physical health were greatly improved.”
