Elder Law Project

Organization: Women's Bar Foundation

The Elder Law Project’s two-fold mission is to educate seniors about the importance of having end-of-life documents such as wills, health care proxies, durable powers of attorney, and living wills — and to prepare these documents for low-income elders on a pro bono basis.

The ELP makes presentations to elders at senior centers and low-income elderly  housing developments to explain the purpose and importance of these end-of-life-documents. Low-income seniors who are interested in having such documents prepared meet with volunteer attorneys at these sites. Once the documents have been prepared, the volunteer attorneys return to the site to have the documents executed.
