The Start of a New Life
SFCS Veteran’s Advocacy Project attorney was able to get his outstanding traffic tickets dismissed, while his case manager assisted him with the process of renewing his license. In addition, SFCS was able to secure a pro-bono attorney to assist Mr. Carter with a small criminal charge, which was also dismissed. With his license renewed, he was able to purchase a car and is now able to visit his daughter in rural Missouri. He is grateful to have his car because another daughter living in the St. Louis area has begun having some dire medical issues. Since he now has a vehicle he is able to assist her with these and transport her to doctors appointments. Today, he is working on the skills he needs to get a promotion, and is enjoying being able to transport himself where he needs to go!
