Since our founding more than 40 years ago, we have provided free legal representation for over 50,000 individuals, focusing on the most vital and recurring legal problems facing older people in our communities: housing, abuse, financial exploitation, consumer problems, grandparent custody, and personal and end-of-life planning needs.
SeniorLAW Center has educated more than 75,000 individuals through community education workshops informing older adults of their legal rights and helping avoid future legal crises, and we have assisted over 100,000 older adults through advice, information, and referral services to other agencies.
We have also conducted professional training for thousands of professionals who work with older people in other fields to sensitize them to the legal problems facing their consumers, patients, and clients.
Our staff serves on numerous committees, task forces, and coalitions addressing the needs of seniors, women, immigrants, families, and the poor to provide advocacy and address systemic solutions to the problems facing our clients.
SeniorLAW Center is supported by a wide diversity of generous funders and partners, including foundations, corporate and law firm sponsors, and individual donors who make our work possible. We are supported in part by funds received by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Department of Aging, through a contract with the Philadelphia Corporation for Aging, as well as the city of Philadelphia, the Pennsylvania Commission for Crime and Delinquency, and many other local, state, and national partners.
