Alice is the sole caregiver to her elderly parents, who are in poor health. It's been hard for her to meet all of their needs. Due to a criminal charge, she lost her job in the midst of the pandemic. She resorted to selling personal belongings to pay her bills.
The Advocate made a successful case for Alice to get emergency relief for rent payments and other essentials. The Advocate connected her with benefits to ensure she had food and necessities. Alice also secured a job interview after her Advocate helped her with the application. All these positive developments will work in her favor as her case proceeds through the court, maximizing the chance that Alice will be able to move forward without a criminal record.
