Senator Hertel Addresses CAPR

State Senator Curtis Hertel (D-Lansing) came to Advent House to speak with participants of the Capital Area Prisoner Re-Entry program (CAPR) last week. Hertel learned about some of the difficulties parolees encountered with obtaining state IDs and Social Security cards upon their release. One of the contributing factors in these cases is the sheer length of time spent without an active driver's license or Social Security account. Senator Hertel's office assisted several CAPR participants, working with the Michigan Secretary of State and Senator Debbie Stabenow's office to resolve these issues in a timely fashion.
