Mission Statement

We believe that housing is a human right and that all tenants are entitled to know about their legal protections and act on them without fear of retaliation. This right must be especially protected amidst the housing crisis that Santa Cruz tenants experience daily.


Through trained tenant counselors and our staff attorney, we help tenants understand what rights they have in a given situation, as well as how to assert them. We also provide free educational events through community partners.

We answer questions about

  • Rent Increases
  • Eviction
  • Repairs and habitability
  • Security Deposits
  • Harassment
  • Lease Provisions
  • And any issue regarding tenant-landlord disputes.

Tenant Sanctuary does not provide legal representation, but we welcome any tenant with a question about their rental situation to contact us and talk to our counselors or staff attorney.
