The National Senior Citizens Law Center advocates nationwide to promote the independence and well-being of low-income elderly individuals and persons with disabilities.
NSCLC advocates through litigation, legislative and agency representation and assistance to attorneys and paralegals in field programs. NSCLC’s functions vary with the needs of clients.
As they say: NSCLC stands up for the rights and interests of the poorest and most vulnerable elderly. NSCLC is the only national organization focusing specifically on issues affecting the elderly poor and disabled. NSCLC:
- advocates for the elderly poor in legislative and administrative policymaking in Washington D.C.
- litigates principally on access and fair procedure issues having broad impact, especially on poor and low-income persons
- trains, informs and assists local advocates throughout the nation so that older persons have the best possible representation for the broadest possible range of cases.
