Senior Citizens Council of Clackamas County provides an invaluable service to the community. They regularly step up to manage the care-giving and financial needs of vulnerable seniors and people with disabilities who have no family members or friends available to serve. I have worked with SCC for years, and have admired their willingness and ability to jump into difficult situations to stabilize and improve the lives of vulnerable Oregonians. They protect their clients from financial abuse/exploitation, connect them with necessary services, and ensure that their medical and care needs are met. They do hard work that would otherwise go undone, and in the process, they avoid an untold amount of human suffering. Clackamas County is very fortunate to have them.
The Senior Citizens Council of Clackamas County is an invaluable resource for the seniors of Clackamas County and their family members. They provide a whole array of services to seniors, but one area of service that's particularly impressive to our firm (Oregon Elder Law) is their fiduciary services. SCC frequently steps up to serve as guardian, conservator, or trustee for seniors who have no suitable family members or friends to take on these roles. Serving in these fiduciary roles is hard work, and SCC performs the work efficiently and with compassion. SCC has a small staff and a small budget, yet they serve a large number of seniors and deliver an impressive amount of services. We at Oregon Elder Law truly admire SCC and wish that all Oregon counties had the benefit of an organization like them.
The work the Senior Citizens council does to protect and enhance the lives of people who would otherwise be lost is amazing. I am sincerely moved when i hear the stories from the staff about a victim of abuse and how the intervention of the Senior Citizens Council has changed their circumstances for the better. I now also know there are too few organizations willing to shed light on the struggles of our neighbors in our communities and across the country. This is why i am proud to, and will continue to, support this incredible group with their mission.
Over the past several years I have had the priviledge to assist the Senior Citizens Council with monetary as well as time donations. They assist seniors and disabled adults whom have been abused in one way or another. I have enjoyed volunteering for them at their annual fund raising event.
