My name is Epifania Adames and I am the Community Outreach Coordinator for the Neighborhood Association for Inter-Cultural Affairs, Inc. (NAICA). Our primary focus area is in the Bronx an Bronx Housing Court for low income tenants facing eviction. As many of you are aware, there is an eviction moratorium in place. Currently, the housing courts are closed.  Therefore, landlords cannot commence any new cases and there are no evictions. Many tenants do not know what is going on, or have questions about how the legal system works, especially during this time. Tenants with active court cases in the Bronx housing court may be confused and scared. We can help them and give them the guidance that they need.  NAICA is committed to providing services during this very difficult time.


We would appreciate your assistance with spreading the word that NAICA is open and is here offering support to families that are in need of legal and social services for their housing court cases. I have attached our flyer with information about our remote services in both Spanish and English. You can also find attached important information about how to start emergency HP actions for tenants that have emergency repairs such as a lack of heat and hot water.  Please use them and share them widely with your clients, members, and staff.

 

Take good care of yourself and your loved ones.

 

Thank you
