Pro Bono Action for Community Impact in Pennsylvania – A SeniorLAW Center and AARP Partnership

Pro Bono Action for Community Impact in Pennsylvania leverages pro bono partnerships with law firms and corporate counsel to fight for systemic changes that expand legal protections and resources for vulnerable seniors. Pennsylvania is the fourth oldest state, and Philadelphia includes both the largest percentage of seniors and poorest overall population among the nation’s 10 largest cities. Issues of law and aging are affecting our housing, financial and social services, health care, and our individual lives profoundly.

HOW WE HELP:
• Together, with our long-standing pro bono partners in Philadelphia, we will look to best practices, model legislation, and other creative solutions.
• Instead of handling individual client matters, pro bono legal partners will work with us to impact systems, policy and laws.
• Our goals include, safeguarding financial security, reducing homelessness, abuse and exploitation, and strengthening intergenerational families.
