My name is Charita. I am raising money to help a young man named Thomas pay for his legal fees.  It is unfortunate that many times the limiting factor in a criminal defense is a lack of funds. Sometimes significant resources are needed to see justice come together. Like many young men of a minority background; this  19-year old young man has been placed in an adult correctional facility with a bail that is impossible to pay. Thomas was taken from his biological mother when he was 2. He grew up in an adoptive family but suffered abuse at the hands of adoptive siblings. He has no family and only a small makeshift support system of extended adoptive family members, former mentors, case managers and advocates. 

These donations will help us put money towards his legal fees and shoulder some of the burden and help him to have a chance at a fair trial.
