This program involves pairs of seniors using the materials in our "Putting Your Affairs in Order" booklets and other CLIA resources to educate their more isolated peers. As part of the team approach, we will also be involving community-minded lawyers to act as "coaches" to the project staff in answering any legal questions that may arise from their outreach efforts.


The Community Legal Information Association (CLIA) is finalizing the outreach phase of their New Horizons for Seniors Project: Putting Your Affairs in Order – One Senior at a Time.

This program involves pairs of seniors using the materials in our "Putting Your Affairs in Order" booklets and other CLIA resources to educate their more isolated peers. As part of the team approach, we will also be involving community-minded lawyers to act as "coaches" to the project staff in answering any legal questions that may arise from their outreach efforts.

Our senior volunteers are trained in our "Putting Your Affairs in Order" series and have information on wills, powers of attorney and health care directives. As well as building capacity for outreach among senior’s organizations, the project will foster collaboration with the legal community.

If you are a senior and would like to learn more about the legal documents that you can use to put your affairs in order, we can help!

We have volunteers who can come to you in your community with all the information you may need. We can even help you create legally binding powers of attorney and health care directives if applicable.

If you are interested in setting up a time to meet with a pair of our volunteers, or if you know someone who might be interested in this service, please contact us:
