Evictions can lead directly to homelessness. When people are evicted, they can end up in shelters or on the streets.
- An eviction may disqualify a person from government assistance, making it harder for them to financially rebuild their life.
- An eviction may disqualify a person from future rental opportunities in the private market. Options are then restricted to unsafe or unhealthy housing.
- An eviction could mean losing the stability to keep a steady job.
