Earlier this week, HPRP staff attorney Michael Stone was on hand at the Veteran and Family Resource Day at the Perry Point VA Medical Center in Cecil County. About 120 former service members attended the event, which connected them with employment, job training, legal assistance, and other needed services.

Michael was there on behalf of HPRP’s Veterans Legal Assistance Program to provide information about VA disability and criminal record expungement. “It was a great event and really shows the level of need of low-income veterans in rural Maryland,” said Michael, who also conducts monthly intakes at Perry Point for homeless and low-income veterans who need help with service-connected disability benefits, non-service connected pensions, and discharge upgrades. “I’m glad to bring them a little of the assistance necessary to help avoid homelessness and other dire situations.”
