The Claire Teague Senior Center is now hosting a free weekly legal clinic on Thursdays from 11:30-12:30. No appointments required; simply drop in.

The clinic is staffed by the Berkshire Center for Justice, which offers services for prospective clients who are 60 or older.

A Community Lunch is also offered at this time, for a suggested $2 donation.

The drop-in legal clinic is a grant-funded program that will be available while funding is available.

Open Enrollment for Medicare and other public insurance programs begins Oct. 15, and we can help.

The Claire Teague Center participates in the SHINE program, (Serving Health Information Needs of Everyone), a free insurance counseling program for seniors and others. Learn more here.
