NEW PARTNERSHIP WITH AIG  UNDERWAY AT CONCORD SENIOR CENTER

CCSLS launched its new Pro Bono Partners program on July 14th with a gala ribbon-cutting ceremony (pictured below) to open its new specialty legal clinic in Concord called "Community Partners Clinic: CCSLS with AIG."  Advance Health Care Directives are available free to seniors at this new monthly clinic. 

CCSLS RECEIVES GRANT FROM THOMAS J. LONG FOUNDATION

CCSLS has been granted a two-year $182,000 grant to strengthen the organization and improve its capacity and effectiveness for the future.  We are very grateful for this opportunity and are excited about the new services we will be able to provide because of this grant.
