Self-Help COVID-19 Information
We are open in Watsonville Monday-Thursday 8:30 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Due to our very limited seating, please call or email first, so we can make sure you are prepared for your visit. Please do not have a friend or family member call or come in person for you. We can only work with the person in need directly.
Due to the complexity of landlord tenant law, we are providing limited assistance.
