Legal outreach includes a wide range of programs and events that proactively reach individuals with legal needs. Community presentations, legal clinics, mobile legal options, and “office hours” at community partner locations are all examples of legal outreach programs.
Outreach is a key component of legal services delivery to older adults, and can help address priority and unmet needs in a community. Additionally, these programs provide an opportunity to foster collaborations with partners and reach older adults who would not otherwise come through your door.
