WHY ARE YOU INVOLVED WITH SENIORLAW CENTER?

SLC’s staff’s commitment to providing quality legal services and assistance to Pa. Seniors in need inspires me to emulate the staff’s passion and commitment and do what I can do in helping that endeavor.

HIGHLIGHT OF YOUR BOARD MEMBERSHIP / LEADERSHIP?

At Board meetings, hearing from the SLC staff their commitment to individual Seniors and how they guided and assisted the Senior through very difficult and troubling experiences

OTHER WAYS YOU SERVE AS A VOLUNTEER FOR SLC?

HelpLine Volunteer 2007 – present

WHY DO YOU THINK OTHERS SHOULD SUPPORT SENIORLAW CENTER?

Many Pennsylvania’s Seniors struggle each day with a multitude of legal issues and crises and do not know where to turn. SLC is there when needed to provide legal advice, services, and representation, referrals to other agencies for non-legal issues and advocacy for all PA. Seniors. SLC cannot provide these services and advocacy without financial support from those who are able to do so. Every dollar helps to support a Senior in need.
