In Texas, an expunction means the Court destroys all records of both the arrest and any court proceedings, so they can’t ever be found on any government maintained database by anyone. Any record of the expunction also gets destroyed. It’s like the arrest (and the expunction) never happened. In order to receive an expunction a Petition must be filed with a court that has jurisdiction requesting that all records pertaining to a specific offense(s) be destroyed. If a court finds a petitioner is entitled to an expunction they will issue an Order granting the expunction.
In Texas, you can expunge an arrest as long as you didn't get convicted or receive some type of community supervision. You can also expunge a Class C Misdemeanor if you've completed a deferred adjudication (probation, treatment, or community service).

Veterans Enterprises of Texas (VETS) is a sub-corporation of the American GI Forum National Veterans Outreach Program, Inc. This non-profit corporation was founded with the specific dual purpose of creating jobs for disabled veterans, and to generate some limited financial support for the client service programs of the NVOP. VETS, founded in 1998, employs up to 50 disabled veterans and non-veterans annually at fair market wages. The manufacturing concern has developed in capacity and experience, and it now serves major government and private sector clients, such as the U.S. Postal Service and Callaway Golf, for the annual production of millions of corrugated products. VETS is a wholly-owned company of the American GI Forum NVOP. Located in San Antonio, Texas, this non-profit entity is approved as a charitable organization under section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Service. VETS is also a member organization of the National Industries for the Severely Handicapped (NISH), thus qualifying it for special government contract opportunities that require the employment of a minimum of 75% disabled individuals on the contract workforce. VETS plays an integral role in the continuum of care that the NVOP offers veterans. It is a job opportunity for disabled individuals; it is a supportive work environment for those reintegrating into the workforce after years of homelessness; and it is a community project that helped reinvigorate a once blighted neighborhood. VETS was selected by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for the National Blue Ribbon Award for innovation in an enterprise community. Interested customers are welcomed to inquire about corrugated fiberboard product needs by contacting VETS administration at (210) 223-4088.

Another project operated by the Veterans Enterprises of Texas is a specially designed center that provides work opportunities for veterans with disabilities that are not ready for mainstream employment. The VETS Work Center is a sheltered environment that promotes temporary work opportunities that will assist in the transformation of these veterans to reach their full potential and enter a mainstream work environment. “VETS” is a member organization of the National Industries for the Severely Handicapped (NISH), also known as Ability-One. “VETS” seeks out contract opportunities with government and private industry to create work that will be conducive to the hiring of a workforce of disabled veterans. The VETS Work Center’s primary work is “kitting,” where assembly of products or materials into a kit create an in-product. A great example is the current contract the Work Center is performing for the U.S. Army who awards retiring soldiers a beautiful commemorative box with a folded American flag, lapel pin, a DVD of information, and some auto decals for retirees. The VETS box manufacturing company (described above) produces the box, and the disabled veterans at the VETS Work Center fold the flags and assemble the pieces to create the commemorative retirement kit. The Center, which was specifically designed for this fulfillment work, has great warehouse space, robust electrical and pneumatic systems for contracts requiring repetitive “bench work” (i.e. electrical soldering, pneumatic hand tools, etc.). The Work Center is an important element in the continuum of care offered to veterans by the American GI Forum National Veterans Outreach Program, and it provides disabled veterans a means of recovery with pride and dignity. Interested customers are encouraged to contact the American GI Forum National Veterans Outreach Program for further information on the work of the VETS Work Center at (210) 223-4088. This non-profit entity is approved as a charitable organization under section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Service.

At The Bridge, we strive to be more than just a handout, we want to be a hand up. We want to engage in meaningful conversations with our homeless and hurting community and look them in the eyes and let them know that we care. So many of us just want to feel like we belong, and that we're seen, and for our street community it's no different. If you don't feel comfortable engaging in conversation, we also have ways to help!
