Community-based Neighborhood Legal Services
SeniorLAW Center provides services not only through its statewide HelpLine and by telephone and walk-in intake at its center city Philadelphia offices, but throughout the communities of Philadelphia. We are proud to provide home and hospital visits, outreaches throughout the city, special projects at community and senior centers, and at its five community-based intake sites.
Services available at all clinics in Spanish on-site and telephone interpretation services available for other languages.
SeniorLAW Center staff and its volunteer attorneys provide services to homebound, bedbound, severely disabled and chronically ill elders in their homes or at hospitals, nursing homes and long-term care facilities, when needed.
Community Education and Special Projects
SeniorLAW Center conducts community education workshops, outreach and special legal services projects throughout community, senior and family sites in Philadelphia, including those which bring corps of volunteer attorneys to sites throughout the city to provide individual services.

Community Legal Clinics for Senior Citizens
