Who We Are

The Volunteers of Legal Service (VOLS) Elderly Project provides free legal services to NYC seniors (age 60+). VOLS partners with pro bono lawyers to prepare wills, powers of attorney, health care proxies and other advance directives for free. The Project also offers 10 monthly walk-in legal clinics at senior centers throughout Manhattan and partners with social workers and community-based organizations to provide high quality holistic services. We also conduct trainings for seniors and senior center staff.
