St. Francis’ Veterans Advocacy Project provides legal representation to our veterans living in the St. Louis region. Through this project, St. Francis provides legal aid to low-income and homeless veterans. If you qualify for our services, VAP can provide assistance to those facing:

  • Municipal and Traffic: Legal aid for past and present legal issues, traffic warrants, tickets, fines and costs, and help to reinstate your driving privileges.
  • Family Law: We can help you navigate difficult situations like divorce, child custody, child support, modifications, and guardianships.
  • Landlord-Tenant: We can provide legal aid for those facing eviction, rent, possession, unlawful detainer, and illegal lock-outs to help maintain or find safe and affordable housing.

VAP has reached hundreds of veterans through outreach events in partnership with St. Louis City, St. Louis County, VA, and Soldiers Memorial. VAP collaborates with St. Patrick’s Center, Hope Recovery, and is supported by Pettus Foundation, Marillac Mission Fund, Legal Support Services Group, Berges Family Foundation, and other organizations to reach veterans in need.

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!
