Petrovich, Legal Aid of Oklahoma staff attorney, celebrated his first anniversary with the organization and in Tulsa on Tuesday.

Assigned to the Day Center for the Homeless, he initially had three cases. One year later that number increased to 50 open cases, and he handled more than 350 cases, helped more than 100 people get identification cards and assisted 85 families by either preventing evictions or getting them more time to find new housing before they were required to move.
Petrovich also is part of a team working on Zero 2016 to end veteran homelessness by the end of the year.

“We are on schedule with that project,” he said.
