SETA is a 501c3 non-profit, public service organization that is dedicated to renters’ rights and interests. We accomplish our goals by assisting, educating, and empowering tenants in the Springfield-Eugene area. We believe that housing rights are human rights and that affordable and accessible housing are the foundation of any strong community.

To advance renters rights and protections, we:

  • Serve as a resource and an information hub
  • Provide a free hotline as a community support
  • Strive to provide the most up-to-date resources and information for renters in need
  • Report and highlight on local data to help support affordable and accessible housing
  • Collaborate with state and local partners on best practices to serve our communities
  • Stand in solidarity with social justice partners to fight back against hate and discrimination

    The SETA Tenant Hotline is open and can be reached at 541-972-3715.  Please leave us a voicemail anytime with a brief overview of the issue for which you are seeking help. We will complete some initial fact-finding and call you back with information or with further clarifying questions.  We have a small volunteer-team and sometimes take a few days to reply. If you have received an urgent notice, please include that information and we will prioritize your call.


    We understand how difficult tenant issues are time-sensitive and we will work as fast we can to help you. If you are a renter seeking assistance, we hope the following resources can provide some measure of help in the meantime:
