Volunteer Wills Program

Help us meet the overwhelming needs of seniors in North Carolina who own property but have income low enough to qualify for Legal Aid NC services. Volunteers interview the client by phone, and prepare the will and advanced directives. Execution is completed either independently by the volunteer or in conjunction with a Signing Day clinic.
