Eviction Prevention

It can be scary knowing you may be evicted soon.  We want to help you maintain your housing and stabilize your living situation.

Missed rent payments, a dispute with your landlord, or other difficulties may have put your housing at risk. At Wellspring Family Services, we can provide financial assistance for low-income families and individuals living in King County as well as advocacy, eviction prevention, and housing stability services to those who qualify.
