If the Attorney for the Defendant is now refusing service, then you need to amend your Statement of Claim and list the Defendant's address so that the Clerk can mail a notice to him. See Uniform Small Claims Rules
As for compensation for the Housing Court Specialist's error, I am afraid the Court may not have the mechanism to reimburse you for this error. Your recourse here would be to ask the Court to put the case back on the hearing calendar so that you would be given the opportunity to make your case against the Defendant.
You need to go to the Clerk's office and obtain a new form to file the Small Claim. You can obtain the Small Claim forms online also. The Clerk's office must accept your filing. Otherwise, you need to file complaint with the Trial Court Administrator.
