Updated: 2020 Will-a-thon Goes Remote

Date: Wednesday, April 8, 2020

DO YOU HAVE A WILL?  DO YOU HAVE MEDICAL DECISION DOCUMENTS, SUCH AS A MEDICAL POWER OF ATTORNEY OR AN ADVANCE DIRECTIVE (LIVING WILL)?

GIVE YOURSELF AND YOUR FAMILY THE GIFT OF PEACE OF MIND KNOWING THAT YOU AND YOUR FAMILY ARE PREPARED FOR THE FUTURE.

 

Interested applicants should call (713) 228-0735 between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m., Monday through Friday.  

 

Location: Due to growing concerns regarding COVID-19, HVL has decided this event will operate remotely.

Who:  Seniors (60+ years old) and spouses, disabled persons, and veterans (of any age).

Eligibility:  Low-Income.  Applicants must be pre-screened over the phone before an appointment will be scheduled. We'll then send you our paperwork to sign and return. 

How:  Once we receive your paperwork, we'll then connect you with a volunteer attorney who will call you, discuss your wishes, and then draft your documents. Execution of the documents will depend on discussions between you, your volunteer attorney, and the current guidelines regarding COVID-19. 

 

The Will-A-Thon is held in partnership with the Houston Bar Association's Elder Law Committee, The City of Houston Department of Neighborhoods, and Neighborhood Recovery Community Development Corporation-Houston. If you are an attorney and you are interested in volunteering, please contact Houston Volunteer Lawyers at probono@hvlp.org for more information.
