The Clean Slate Project
Feed My Sheep is pleased to announce that we will be partnering with The Greening Law Group to bring The Clean Slate Project to the Central Texas area (serving the Wiliamson, Bell, and McLennan counties).
Many of our patrons face barriers in life due to criminal history. These barriers include: not being able to rent an apartment, not being able to reunite with family, not being able to get a job, and more. Luckily, for some, there may be a solution. The Greening Law Group has joined us in this to offer legal counsel to our patrons throughout the process.
The Clean Slate Project was founded with the intent to offer such people a second chance at life. We here at Feed My Sheep are built on a foundation of dignity and respect for those we serve. We believe in offering people the chance to turn their lives around, and to live with intent. We are confident that this project will make a meaningful, valuable difference for those involved.
If you would like to help us provide someone with this opportunity, head to the Donate page.
Everyone, at some point, has made a mistake or has been in the wrong place at the wrong time resulting in trouble. For some, that trouble can lead to a criminal record reflecting an arrest, charge, or conviction. While most convictions cannot be removed from a person’s record, Texas law does allow individuals to remove information about an arrest, charge, or conviction from their permanent records in certain circumstances. This is called an expunction. Once a person’s record is expunged, all information is removed from the criminal record and that person can deny the incident ever occurred.
