Tennessee Senior Law Alliance (TSLA) is a statewide provider of civil legal services for Tennessee seniors (60+) facing issues that can be prevented or remedied by civil legal means. With more than 6 million seniors living below the federal poverty line, Tennessee has taken a stand to protect and preserve the quality of life for our seniors by providing quality care and services to all 95 counties.
TSLA, in conjunction with the four major legal aid providers across the state (Memphis Area Legal Services, West Tennessee Legal Services, Legal Aid Society of Middle Tennessee and the Cumberlands, and Legal Aid of East Tennessee), seeks to strengthen and expand legal services by providing Tennessee seniors with solutions to civil legal problems by addressing core legal issues and helping them to sustain and improve their quality of life. Core legal issues include accessing benefits and healthcare; obtaining and maintaining safe and secure housing; avoiding or escaping abuse and exploitation; and engaging in important estate planning activities such as creating wills, advanced directives, and powers of attorney.
This project is funded through a grant awarded by the Davidson County Chancery Court, Part III, from the Senior Trust/Elder Trust settlement (Case No. 11-1548-III) and through a contract administered by the Tennessee Commission on Aging and Disability.
