What great work this team did on Sat. Sept. 18th. They spent the day in Barnwell, SC navigating the SC Stay Plus online portal with a goal of getting low-income folks help paying for rent and utilities. Many already had been served with a notice of eviction. The computer system was onerous but the people genuinely appreciated the help and were very patient. Now we hope the money gets to them before it is too late.

I recently returned from the ABA Equal Justice Conference and had the privilege of meeting and spending some time with John and Jean Rosenberg. I had read this story online and thought you would be inspired by them as much as I was. Enjoy
