I am a retired attorney who lives in Washington, D.C. in a diverse neighborhood with a mix of all income brackets and ages. I am periodically approached for advice. I particularly noted that the elderly were particularly vulnerable and often taken advantage of by landlords, and creditors attempting unlawful collection actions against Social Security and VA benefits.
I identified this organization and referred 2 very needy senior citizen to them for help. I was so impressed with the compassionate help they provided at no cost that I became a recurring contributor. I have been so touched by the impact of their work and the peace of mind it gives to some of the most vulnerable of our society.
