Kristen N. Wilson

Director of Development

WHAT DO YOU DO AT SENIORLAW CENTER?

Along with the Executive Director, I help lead all fundraising efforts for SeniorLAW Center, including grant writing and reporting, grant research, individual giving, special events, donor development and cultivation, special events, and more.

WHY DO YOU WORK AT SENIORLAW CENTER?

We protect the most vulnerable population, our seniors. My grandmother helped raise me, and I feel it is my duty to pay it forward to help seek justice for older people, the greatest generation.

HIGHLIGHT OF YOUR WORK AT SENIORLAW CENTER?

Traveling to Harrisburg on World Elder Abuse Awareness Day; the feeling during our call-to-action at our annual Gala when good people come together to exceed our goal to help us assist more older people’s basic human needs – freeing them from elder abuse and financial exploitation, preventing homelessness, and so much more.
