IDAHO LEGAL AID RECEIVES $5,000 GRANT
Pocatello, Idaho (July 8, 2016)
The Union Pacific Foundation awards Idaho Legal Aid Services funds to provide guardianships and conservatorships in eastern Idaho.
Idaho Legal Aid Services, Inc. is pleased to announce that its Pocatello office is the recipient of a $5,000 grant from the Union Pacific Foundation to protect more low-income Idahoans in eastern Idaho by establishing guardianships and conservatorships for vulnerable children and older adults who have lost capacity.
Guardianships and conservatorships are essential to ensuring that seniors and children in need are able to live safe and stable lives by providing legally appointed individuals responsible for protecting them. The roles of guardians and conservators include making medical decisions, ensuring critical services (such as registering for school) are in reach, and managing assets for the people in their care. The Pocatello Legal Aid attorneys have years of experience helping vulnerable Idahoans with guardianship and conservatorship issues.
Idaho Legal Aid Services is thrilled to be one of the recipients of the Union Pacific Foundation’s 2016 grant awards and we appreciate their belief in our mission and their commitment to improving the health and safety of Idaho communities.
