Assistance for displaced tenants: 'They need to help the people'

YAKIMA, Wash.-- More than a hundred tenants evicted from the Cascade and Senator Apartments waited in line for help today. Yakima County Human Services and Northwest Justice offered housing assistance and advice on homeless shelters and legal rights. Tenants who say they have nowhere to go still aren't happy.

"They're doing this to people and they need to help the people instead of just giving them information and go somewhere else, that's crazy," said Anita Lewis, who has lived in the Cascade Apartments for two years.

The property owner is responsible to give the tenants $2,000 to relocate or twice the amount of rent. KIMA made more attempts to contact him today. No calls have been returned.
