Services include assistance with replacing lost documents, housing, landlord-tenant disputes, consumer rights, insurance questions and referrals to local or state agencies, which may offer further assistance.

Coordinator Rosalie Fragoso said the service became available in mid-April and will continue to be available into the first week of June.
