New York

“I stayed with one of the H.E.L.P. cases, woman facing a misdemeanor criminal charge which was holding up her application to Section 8 public housing. She had a long history of prior arrests and convictions but has been incident free for years and attending counseling and treatment programs. After four separate appearances, it was dismissed today “in the interest of justice.” That phrase has never meant so much to me as it did this morning — not about money, or making partner, or billing more hours — simply helping someone out for no other reason than it is the right thing to do. Her comment when she learned it was dismissed: “I am blessed.” And she is the one who is homeless.”
