Legal Assistance and the Aging Services Network: Strengthening Partnerships and Communication

When: Wednesday, August 28, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. PT/2:00 p.m. ET.​

This webcast was originally scheduled for August 7, 2019, and has been rescheduled to August 28, 2019. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and hope you will join us on the new date. If you have already registered for the webcast, there is no need to register again—you will receive an email from GotoWebinar confirming the new date. All materials and a recording will be posted on our website after the training.

Over half of older adults have at least one legal problem in a year, and ten percent have six or more legal problems. In many situations, both legal and non-legal interventions are needed to fully address an issue. Collaboration between legal assistance providers and the aging services network is key to a holistic approach to elder justice.

In practice, building these partnerships requires cultivation of relationships, strong communication, and a clear understanding of what each partner does. This webcast will provide practical tools for creating collaborative systems that will benefit your programs, clients, and the community.

Presenters will share:

  • An overview of Older Americans Act programs and structure;
  • Promising practices for connecting legal services with the aging and disability network; and
  • Highlights from collaborative projects in North Dakota.

This presentation builds on previous NCLER trainings on legal services capacity building. Please see The Essential Role of the State Legal Assistance Developer and Legal Issue Spotting, Intake, and Referrals for a general introduction to referrals and the OAA legal services delivery system.


  • Sarah Galvan, Senior Staff Attorney at Justice in Aging
  • Michelle Gayette, Assistant Director of the North Dakota Aging Services Division
  • Richard LeMay, Executive Director of Legal Services of North Dakota

Closed captioning will be available on this webcast. A link with access to the captions will be shared through GoToWebinar’s chat box shortly before the webcast start time.

NOTE: This training will be presented in a WEBCAST format to accommodate more participants. Due to the high volume of participants, computer audio will be the only option to listen to the presentation. No telephone call-in number will be provided. Please plan accordingly. Thank you.
