LEGAL AID NC - SECOND CHANCE INITIATIVE
Legal Aid of North Carolina is expanding its expungement services to remove a criminal conviction or charge from a person’s record. Such second chance programs allow those who have served their time to be prosperous, law-abiding community members rather than automatically excluded from opportunities and often cycled back into the criminal justice system. We are delighted Legal Aid of NC is bringing their expungement staff to The Harrelson Center, affording our partners’ clients ease of access to these services.

OPERATION PRETTY THINGS
OPT is devoted to loving and empowering women victimized of domestic violence and sexual assault. By coming alongside domestic violence shelters and sexual trauma support organizations, OPT is able to provide the necessary tools, gifts, and services to help women take their next steps towards a life free from abuse.
February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness month. OPT works to bring awareness and education to preteen and teenage girls by way of their Locker Box Initiative. High school girls gather to prepare pouches of feminine hygiene packets, along with a few "pretty things," and a red flags card. These pouches are then provided to NHC Middle Schools to be given to girls as needed.
