DETROIT (WXYZ) — In just a few short weeks, Detroit's moratorium on evictions will end. That decision will potentially put families at risk of losing their homes during Michigan's coldest months.

The city reminds tenants that their landlord may not evict them unless the landlord follows the legal process outlined here. If your landlord tries to force you to move and threatens you, call 911. If you are locked out of your home or apartment, you should seek legal help immediately, according to the city of Detroit's website.

The United Way held a virtual town how Wednesday to inform residents about the resources available.

If you or someone you know is facing eviction and has received a notice to quit or a court order summons, complaint or judgment, please access the eviction prevention program by calling the Eviction Prevention Hotline number at (866) 313-2520 or completing the online Eviction Prevention Intake Form.
