Over 25,000 eviction cases are filed every year in Cook County. What does that mean, and what is the impact on families and neighborhoods? As Matthew Desmond’s book Evicted makes clear, eviction is both a cause and a symptom of poverty, and the consequences of an eviction can be long lasting and far-reaching, negatively affecting a family’s health, education, and employment, while destabilizing neighborhoods and schools. Learn how legal aid advocates in Chicago work to reduce the negative consequences of eviction and homelessness, and how you can help.
