The Project

Preserving housing stability by providing legal services to older adults victimized by elder abuse and housing-related fraud.

In Los Angeles, where cost of living is high, housing stability for people in low-income communities is crucial. Elder abuse and housing-related fraud can force older adults from their homes they have lived in for decades. This fellowship seeks to protect older adults from those threats to keep them in their homes.

Fellowship Plans

Daniel will offer civil legal services to older adults in underserved areas of Los Angeles County who are facing elder abuse and homeownership fraud.  He will also provide community trainings for staff at senior centers and community organizations to recognize threats to housing stability and instances of elder abuse where legal intervention is possible.
