Volunteers Needed for Low Asset Wills Program
Volunteers are currently being sought for the IndyBar’s Low Asset Wills program, a pro bono initiative that endeavors to provide individuals in need of last wills and testaments and advance directives with free legal assistance.
Local social and legal service providers, as well as the IndyBar, advertise this program to the public. Financial applications from potential individuals to be served by the program will be accepted from January 1 until March 31, 2011.
Applications are financially screened and those qualifying will be matched with an attorney volunteer. The qualifying applicant will receive a letter with the attorney’s contact information. The attorney will receive a fax with the client’s information. The applicant will be responsible for contacting the attorney to set up an appointment.
Document templates will be provided electronically to each volunteer. Volunteers should be flexible as some of those who qualify for this program will not have unlimited access to transportation.
The time commitment is minimal–but the impact is great. Feedback shows that each client assignment takes about 3-5 hours of time. Contact Caren Chopp at firstname.lastname@example.org or 269-2000 if you are interested in participating.•
