Other Ways to Get Involved

 

Wills for Heroes

This program was created to provide service to the first responders that serve and protect us every day. These clinics are hosted by request from local fire and police departments. During these clinics we provide first responders with a power of attorney, advanced healthcare directive, and will. Please check the scoop for information on when and where these clinics are being held.

 Wills for Seniors

This program is an extension of the wills for heroes project. Like first responders, it is very important that seniors have their documents in order should the unthinkable occur. Seniors are a part of the community and rarely prepare for what will happen when they are no longer here. This program works to inform and prepare seniors about the importance of estate planning documents. This program provides seniors with a power of attorney, advanced healthcare directive, and will. We hope that our efforts will provide peace of mind for the seniors and their families and reduce heir property issues. Please check the scoop for information on when and where these clinics are being held.

If you are interested in volunteering at any of these clinics, please contact Hilaire Armstrong.
