WHAT DO YOU DO AT SENIORLAW CENTER?

Our project is a federally funded state-wide initiative to increase access to justice for seniors with intergenerational custody matters.

WHY DO YOU WORK AT SENIORLAW CENTER?

Working at SeniorLAW Center allows me to provide seniors with access to a justice system that can otherwise seem confusing and feel unwelcoming. The Grandparents Raising Grandchildren project also allows me to advocate for keeping vulnerable families together and safe.

It is an honor to empower seniors to advocate for themselves and their families.
