Legal Counsel for the Elderly

Active Intake Project

Taking legal services directly to D.C. neighborhoods

Our Program

The Active Intake Project (AIP) is an innovative legal services delivery program, which brings legal services directly to the neighborhoods where D.C. seniors live. The AIP is part of AARP Legal Counsel for the Elderly’s Pro Bono Project. While most of our cases require D.C. seniors to initiate contact with our office through our legal intake line, the Active Intake Project ensures that LCE reaches underserved, low-income seniors in the District who may be reluctant or unable to initiate contact with our office.
