In a very real sense CRLA was my port in the storm for all the craziness [of] my housing issues since first receiving my housing voucher in December 2019, but remarkably, became critical during COVID-19 with threats of eviction and refusals to continue  to take my voucher on the part of the owners. Where it not for CRLA I would have fallen through the cracks entirely!
