HVL Helps Seniors
Many seniors in Houston are living in poverty, and rely on legal aid to meet some of their most basic needs. Houston Volunteer Lawyers works to provide vulnerable seniors with proper housing and necessary estate planning documents, as well as preventing any potential financial exploitation.  A donation to Houston Volunteer Lawyers will help strengthen the means necessary to meet the unique needs of vulnerable seniors.
