LEGAL NEEDS ASSESSMENT
Last year, the Tennessee Commission on Aging and Disability (TCAD) received a federal grant to study and enhance the existing legal services delivery system for Tennesseans age 60 and over. Part one/year one of the grant requires TCAD to distribute a legal needs assessment to seniors statewide. We would like to ask for your assistance to ensure that the assessment gets into the hands of as many seniors as possible. Let your voice be heard. Take the Legal Needs Assessment Here.
Remote Area Medical will be conducting clinics in Athens, TN on July 8 & 9 and in East Ridge, TN September 30 & October 1. For information about the basic services and general guidelines, please visit ramusa.org.
