Jazzcelyn is a mother, visionary, and former client of Legal Aid Society looking for a second chance.

Like many people with past criminal records, Jazzcelyn found herself trying to reconnect with her family and get her life back on track.

Unfortunately, because of her past criminal record, she struggled to access basic necessities like housing and employment.

“I was unable to move into certain areas or qualify for certain jobs because I had this title of being a convicted felon. I began to wonder, how can I move forward and be great if my past continues to haunt me,” said Jazzcelyn Glover.

When Ana talks about her children, her smile lights up the room. Soccer games, movie nights, and family outings fill their weekly calendar. “When we are together, our energy is magnetic,” said Ana.

As a mother of three beautiful children, Ana never imagined that she would be in an abusive marriage and due to the financial strain of separation, sell their home. On top of the numerous issues she faced, Ana found herself trying to understand the legal process alone.

“After separating from my ex-husband, I went to court alone. I had no legal representation, and I was trying to figure out how to get an order of protection. After my hearing, an advocate from Legal Aid Society walked up to me and let me know they could help.”

When you first meet Charita, it is difficult not to notice her passion, loyalty, and love for her community. She glows as she talks about her grandson and her job as a school aid.

Nevertheless, Charita, like many others, has had her share of struggles. When she first arrived at Legal Aid Society, Charita was in the process of being evicted from her home.

” I felt helpless. I felt lonely. I had butterflies in my stomach. I didn’t know what to do or where to go, but when I found out about Legal Aid Society, I knew everything would be ok,” said Charita.

Through Charita’s experience navigating the legal system, she has become a fierce advocate for those needing legal assistance.
