When Mike* came to Legal Aid he was in a very precarious position. He had been homeless for some time, and during Hurricane Irma he sought safety in a shelter. Like many in the homeless community, he left his belongings hidden when he went to a shelter during the hurricane. When he returned, he found that his belongings, including a Green Card, were washed away by the hurricane.
We assisted Mike in obtaining a replacement permanent resident card (AKA Green Card) and also assisted him in applying for social security disability benefits. Both of these made a huge difference for Mike’s security. And in true pay-it-forward spirit, Mike recently made a $1,000 donation to Legal Aid. We really appreciate our clients like Mike and their generous spirit!
