“While a clinic student, Clean Slate forced me to confront the needs in my own backyard, and I remain committed to that cause because it is necessary and Clean Slate’s work is impactful. Clean Slate is providing the opportunities for people to regain their footing and restore their lives. This is great for the clients served, for their families, and for their community. With my support and yours, Clean Slate could reach more people and help restore more lives.”
