CELJ also places great emphasis on community outreach and education. Attorneys from the center deliver informative presentations on topics such as elder abuse prevention, financial exploitation, healthcare options, and housing rights. By raising awareness and equipping older adults with knowledge, CELJ empowers them to protect themselves and make informed decisions regarding their legal affairs.
