Dianne De La Mare


The US Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Community Living (ACL) has recently announced the release of $1,050,000 to Justice in Aging to create a new National Center on Law and Elder Rights (NCLER). The NCLER will support ACL’s on-going efforts to protect the rights, financial security and independence of older adults. The Center will provide tools to help aging professionals serve older clients and consumers more effectively and serve as an easy single point of entry to a comprehensive system of legal resource support.
