Our home is a dangerous zone. Not only is there various sinkholes, sinking areas in the flooring, and a 12"x 12" HOLE in the middle of the kitchen that is open and you can see a 3 ft drop under the house that anyone could fall into at any moment. In the bedroom I'm staying in, the entire floor bounces like a trampoline every time someone walks into the room, and feels like the entire floor in the room is going to collapse at any moment, along with everything in the room. Everyone else in the house is in dire necessity of stable housing (legal and otherwise positions of somewhat desperation). The landlord is charging $125/week (very high, considering the average pay and cost of living for the area, making it extremely tough for the tenants to save up and leave the place). I'm sure this entire post seems crazy, but every bit of it is truth. I'm leaving, but wondering if there is anyway I can help the other tenants living in these horrid conditions that they're unable to escape from.

Report the landlord to the local housing authority?

Default Perhaps

Perhaps the best way to assist them is to tell them to leave like you are doing.
