Many of our homeless have outstanding non-moving violation traffic tickets that keep them from being employed. Some have lost their identifications and various states require them to be represented by an attorney in order to obtain new birth certificates. Some have been arrested for living in camps and various other misdemeanors. Some may have unfair evictions on their records.
Having access to legal resources will enable us to help these individuals work through the system to resolve their problems will then allow them to obtain more productive employment, rent apartments, and get access to resources to help them as they move toward independence.
We are not looking for someone to simply make these problems go away. What we are looking for are volunteers who can help them figure out the best way to address these problems in the most efficient way to get them back into society as legal, productive citizens.
If you are in the legal profession and your heart leads you to want to help our friends, please contact Debbie Rima at firstname.lastname@example.org or Mike Bencheck at email@example.com.
Bless you for blessing our friends!
