How We Do It
Our staff consists of an Executive Director, Program Coordinator and an Intake Coordinator serving our community with enormous help from many volunteer attorneys and paralegals. UVLA receives funding from local governments, bar associations, community foundations and the Area Agency on Aging in Region 10. Financial eligibility for applicants is determined by federal poverty guidelines. Seniors 60+ are eligible regardless of income for limited assistance.
