What is the Title III-B Program for Seniors?

A new legal service is being offered in the region for seniors who qualify.  While the program does not base eligibility only on a person’s income or resources, the program directs services to those sixty years or older who are in the greatest social and/or economic need.  Case priorities include: income, health care, long term care, nutrition, housing, utilities, protective services, defense of guardianship, abuse, neglect, and age discrimination.  For more information on this program contact Kayla Ives/I&RA Specialist, (843) 436-6252 or kives@wrcog.org.
