JustFix.nyc supports tenants in neglected housing situations with technology that helps them build well-documented cases and connect with community and legal advocates. Our platform is comprised of two complementary tools: 1. A mobile app that assists tenants in gathering evidence, mediating with their landlord through templated communications, reporting violations to city agencies, connecting with organizers and attorneys, and presenting a “case history" in housing court. 2. A dashboard that integrates with the tenant app to allow organizers, attorneys, and other advocates to streamline communication with tenants and build group cases. Integrations with open datasets from city and state agencies enable advocates to analyze trends across buildings, landlords, and neighborhoods. We work with neighborhood based tenant organizing groups and major legal service orgs, and employ a model of community-led development in order to design and distribute our services to those who need it most.
