RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- The Washoe County Senior Services Department has completed the transition to established non-profit legal services agencies for the Senior Law Project.
Due to reduced county revenue and federal and state budget cuts during the recession, the Senior Law Project services were cut in half by 2012. Following a review of the program, recommendations from the Senior Services Advisory Board and approval by the Board of County Commissioners, the Department worked with the Nevada Aging and Disability Services Division (Nevada ADSD), the primary funder of the Senior Law Project, to consider qualified legal services agencies to restore the Senior Law Project to previous levels of service.

Hours: 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Friday, closed noon-1 p.m.
