Clean Slate Clinic
The Kelseyville United Methodist Church will host a "Clean Slate" clinic on Saturday March 8, in collaboration with Legal Services of Northern California, One Justice, USF law students (who will ride the "Justice Bus" to Ukiah and Kelseyville), and the Lake County Bar Association. The workshop will give local residents a chance to expunge their criminal records and will be held at the church campus in Kelseyville in Lake County, California.
"Although we are a small congregation, our facility is alive with activities as we host a bi-monthly food pantry, a weekly thrift shop, 4-H and Girl Scout programs, 12 Step Programs, Alternative Dispute Resolution training, and share the facility with another religious congregation" said Wanda Celli, Pastor at Kelseyville. "The church's fellowship hall also serves as a gallery for the local Quilt Guild during the annual Pear Festival and as a "sing-a-long caroling" venue during the town's annual Winter Parade of Lights."
The church has teamed with Legal Services of Northern California and One Justice in the past to provide "Path to Citizenship" assistance for legal immigrants who are eligible to complete their citizenship paperwork.
The Kelseyville United Methodist Church has occupied the same property in Kelseyville since before the first town map was drawn in 1871 and has been a vital participant in Kelseyville's activities over the last 143 years.
