Protecting and Serving our Elderly Neighbors

Senior citizens are some of the most vulnerable members of our communities. More and more Tennesseans age 60 and older live in poverty and face financial insecurity, housing instability, difficulties accessing benefits and healthcare, and exploitation and abuse. Often, they may not be able to afford a private attorney and are left isolated and unprepared to navigate complicated issues and legal systems.

Our services are free of charge to qualifying seniors.
