Rent/Eviction Relief

Governor Newsom ordered the postponement of eviction or foreclosures through 3/31/20.  The order does not relieve a tenant from the obligation to pay rent or restrict the landlord’s ability to recover rent that is due. The order also requests banks and other financial institutions to halt foreclosures and related evictions during this time period.

The Governor’s Executive Order asks the California Public Utilities Commission to monitor measures undertaken by public and private utility providers to implement customer service protections for critical utilities, including electric, gas, water, internet, landline telephone, and cell phone service on a weekly basis.

The next time you are ordering from Amazon, you can make an easy choice to click on this link (JFS San Diego COVID 19 Amazon Wishlist) and have groceries delivered to the JFS food pantry (called the Corner Market).  The pantry is getting very low on food, and there are a lot of people in need now.  If many of us even have one or two items delivered, it could make a difference to a hungry person or family.
